After waiting patiently for all of our chemicals to arrive, Maria Moran – who is doing her 4th year project in the O’Duill group – beat the lads to it and set up her first reaction. She also provided us with a good stock of TLC spotters. Here’s to lots more exciting chemistry!
Arann Drohan has just graduated from the Waterford Institute of Technology with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Pharmaceutical Science, which included a final year research project on polymeric drug delivery platforms. Arann is keen to apply his knowledge to developing novel, more easily cleavable directing groups for C–H activation during his M.Sc.
After graduating with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Chemistry from Maynooth University, Liam Fitzgerald joins the group on a prestigious SFI PhD scholarship. In collaboration with CÚRAM, Liam will be investigating new ion-responsive drug delivery platforms. We’re excited to have him on the team!
