Welcome to the Research Group @ Manchester Metropolitan University

Manchester Metropolitan University, All Saints Campus (2017)

The Sutcliffe Research Group is part of the Division of Chemistry and Envionmental Science, within the School of Science and the Environment, at Manchester Metropolitan University.


We are a team of scientists interested in the application of modern synthetic and analytical chemistries to current and emerging drug threats. The group, led by Dr Oliver Sutcliffe, has a diverse spectrum of backgrounds including chemistry, forensic science/chemistry, pharmacy and even veterinary medicine. Our principle areas of research are focused on illicit or abused drug analysis/detection and new psychoactive substances (NPS, formally known as "legal highs").


The research group also operates MANDRAKE, a scientific resource based at Manchester Metropolitan University, working in partnership with key stakeholders to facilitate rapid, robust and cost-effective chemical analysis for harm-reduction/intelligence sharing within the Greater Manchester Region.
