Dr Camp then went on to hold various research and managerial positions at Griffith University, Syntex (USA), the Australian National University and Monash University. In 2001, he returned to Griffith University to head the newly formed Biota and Compound Management group in the Natural Product Discovery collaboration between Griffith University and AstraZeneca. Dr Camp was the driving force behind establishment of the Queensland Compound Library and was appointed Foundation Director to this national resource in 2007.
Dr Camp???s research interests include:
- Selection, synthesis and enumeration of molecular scaffolds to afford focused libraries for prosecution of chemical biology and drug discovery programs;
- Generation of natural product extract libraries compatible with high throughput screening that ultimately yield innovative leads for drug discovery.
