The central theme of Prof. O Shea’s research lies in the advancement of new strategies for the synthesis and functional assessment of structurally complex molecules. Specific goals include the development of NIR fluorophores for fluorescence guided surgery, new light activated anti-cancer agents, and the generation of chemical tools to assist in gaining a molecular level insight into biological processes. My research has its foundations in organic chemistry and chemical biology with strong collaborative links with medical imaging.
AMBER has a strong emphasis on collaboration. Central to AMBER’s research remit are collaborative projects performed with industry partners, and working with academic, industry and wider stakeholder on international and national research programmes.Get in touch
