Professor Colin Fishwick
Computer-aided design and synthesis of drug-like molecules
Colin Fishwick received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of Liverpool, graduating with First Class Honours in 1982. He went on to carry out his PhD there from 1982-1985 before joining the staff at University of Leeds in 1985. He was appointed to a Chair in Medicinal Chemistry in 2009. He is currently Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Leeds and Honorary Visiting Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Bradford, Institute of Cancer Therapeutics and at the University of Sheffield. He has authored more than 100 publications.
His research interests focus on the application of structure--‐based molecular design to the identification of new therapeutic drug leads, particularly for anti-infective agents. Computer-aided design and subsequent synthesis of drug-like molecules has been directed against important therapeutic targets including antibacterial, antimalerial, antithrombotic, anti-Alzheimer's agents and anti-cancer agents.
