Project Description

''Rule-breakers'', platinum anticancer complexes that do not follow the well established structure/activity relationships, have emerged as the way forward in the treatment of cancer resistant to the current generation of drugs and in reducing side effects. We have developed two new groups of ''rule-breakers'' and these have already demonstrated highly promising anticancer activity and novel biological behaviour. In this project we will (i) prepare new anticancer active platinum complexes based on these two higly promising group of compounds and (ii) determine how these drugs work and what happens to them when in biological environments.
