Sutcliffe Research Team (2017)
The Sutcliffe Research Group is a team of scientists interested in the application of modern synthetic and analytical chemistries to current forensic problems. 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.
