Pigments of Life Research Laboratory

We are an interdisciplinary research lab specialising in mycobacterial diseases, such as tuberculosis and leprosy, and emerging non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections. One of our objectives is to unravel the molecular mechanism by which mycobacterial pathogens utilise the 'Pigments of Life' during infection.

In parallel, we are dedicated to pioneering infection models and developing therapeutic strategies (antibiotics and vaccines) for mycobacterial diseases. 

Ultimately, our goal is to contribute to the understanding of bacterial biology, gain new perspectives, and achieve scientific breakthroughs to improve human health.

Our ongoing projects include:

- Characterisation of the mycobacterial haem metabolic pathway. 

- Synthesis and evaluation of anti-mycobacterial drug candidates.

- Development of novel vaccines targeting mycobacterial diseases.
