Pharmaceutical Chemist

BSc Hons; PhD.

After finishing a Bachelor of Science at UTS, Daniel worked for 2 years in an Environmental Chemistry role in Canberra. He returned to Sydney in 2016 to obtain a PhD degree in Medicinal Chemistry funded by a UNSW Research Excellence Award.

After the completion of his PhD, Daniel entered an academic position at UNSW funded by Noxopharm where he helped guide the chemistry direction and strategies of the drug discovery program. Daniel was then able to officially join Noxopharm as Pharmaceutical Chemist in 2020 before more recently taking on the role of Director of Pharmaceutical Chemistry. In this position he has driven the pharmaceutical chemistry efforts on multiple projects and oversees every aspect of the drug discovery alongside the biology-focused Noxopharm team members.

Daniel maintains close links with UNSW Sydney with a recently appointed Visiting Fellow position that allows for further collaboration between Noxopharm and the University.
