Welcome! The Malins lab is a chemistry research group based at the Research School of Chemistry at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.

Our research lies at the interface of organic chemistry and chemical biology. We aim to develop versatile new synthetic tools for small molecule synthesis, protein bioconjugation, and the design of peptide-based therapeutics. By expanding the toolbox of practical methods and reagents for the direct modification of complex biomolecules, we seek to understand their role in mediating biological processes as well as enhance their therapeutic potential.
