Emeritus Professor Richard Keene  

BSc PhD DSc (Adelaide) CChem FRACI FRSC

Richard Keene retired in 2012 from James Cook University where he held the title of Distinguished Professor, and moved from Townsville to Adelaide:  he is now an Honorary Visiting Research Fellow in the School of Chemistry & Physics at the University of Adelaide.  Richard’s research interests have centred around the steroeochemistry of oligonuuclear metal complexes – and in particular the elucidation of the effect of molecular geometry on intramolecular electron transfer, and the interaction of such complexes with nucleic acids and their potential as diagnostic and therapeutic agents against cancer cells and particularly against bacteria, including multidrug-resistant pathogens such as MRSA.
