Prof Paul Wyatt 

My aim as Head of the DDU is to develop translational research at Dundee by integrating my and other’s experience of Drug Discovery in the Pharma/Biotech sector with academic life-sciences research. My role in leading a high quality, multi-disciplinary drug discovery team is to identify leads to validate novel drug discovery targets in animal models of disease and where appropriate develop them into new treatments.
