Dr Lydia Pieng Ping Liew
BSc (Hons.) PhD in Chemistry, University of Auckland
Dr Lydia Liew is an early career research fellow at the Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre, University of Auckland, New Zealand. Lydia is a medicinal chemist with interests in drug design and development. She is currently working on the discovery of molecules to exploit the characteristics of the tumour microenvironment for the treatment of cancer.
Research | Current
Lydia's research is in design, synthesis and development of small molecules that interact with protein targets in the tumour microenvironment. This work is achieved through the computational models which are used to carry out virtual screening of drug-like molecules to predict their potential for interaction at the receptor of interest and complemented with medicinal chemistry.
