His research portfolio is based on novel technological innovation & therapeutics with the following major themes:
1) Therapies related to immuno-oncology in liver and pancreas cancer using saRNA and aptamer technologies
2) Methods of immunomodulation in cancer with focus on radiofrequency ablation
4) Brain-computer interfacing with an emphasis on eye tracking technology
5) Cannabis-based medicinal products - he is currently leading a broad research programme from pre-clinical to clinical studies focusing on pain, inflammation and cancer
