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

3) Surgical devices - he is the inventor of an internationally patented novel clip applicator - watch technology in action

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
