Chemistry & Biology of Disease

The quick diagnosis and the effective treatment of medical conditions rely on complete understanding of the biochemical mechanisms of disease. 

Research at Maynooth University is improving understanding of the chemistry and molecular mechanisms of diseases such as muscular dystrophy, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  

Our researchers are designing new therapeutics, evaluating their biological activity, and understanding disease mechanisms at a molecular level.  Our focus is on developing new synthetic methodologies, the synthesis and characterisation of biomaterials and novel compounds and elucidating the chemistry and biochemistry of protein interactions, function and activity.

Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact chembiodisease@nuim.ie for more information.
