Our deputy-director Professor Richard Payne was awarded the prestigious Liversidge Lecture from the Royal Society of NSW in 2020. After delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rich was finally able to deliver his lecture at The University of Sydney this week. Rich’s talk entitled ‘Drug Discovery Inspired by Natural Products’ covered key areas of his research on the discovery of anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-coagulant peptides from natural sources including bugs and humans!


The Liversidge Lecture was established under the terms of a bequest by Professor Archibald Liversidge, who was a professor of chemistry at the University of Sydney from 1874-1907. The lecture is awarded biennially to encourage high-quality research in chemistry and upon the recommendation of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute.


It was wonderful to celebrate such fascinating research with a huge live-audience, congratulations Rich!
