Welcome

Macquarie University Lake

Thank you for visiting the Piggott Group website. Our research spans the exciting and challenging interface between chemistry and biology. We are particularly interested in exploring the extraordinary chemical and structural diversity of natural products and using these molecules as new drug leads and as probes to elucidate biochemical and cellular pathways.


We are located in the Department of Molecular Sciences (MolSci) at the picturesque 126-hectare North Ryde campus of Macquarie University in Sydney. MolSci is part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering and has around 25 academic staff and 80 higher degree research students.
