University of Basel
Active Research in synthetic chemistry with an emphasis in building new tools and methods.
I have overseen three masters students in independent research projects, taught practical chemistry for chemists for two years and conducted a very active personal research project for 4 years.
I have authored 11 journal articles in reputable science journals, I am an inventor on six patents and I am currently working on a book and an additional 2 journal articles.
I have spent 5 years in the pharmaceutical industry working at highly competitive places such as the Genomics Institute for the Novartis research foundation. I did an internship at Agouron Pharmaceuticals, now part of Pfizer over ten years ago. I am proficient with automated methods and robotics used in chemical research and have mastered topics such as combinatorial chemistry, high throughput screening, structure activity relationships (SAR), experience with adsorption distribution metabolism excretion and toxic studies (ADMETox), and I have worked in several different disease indications such as HIV, Cancer, Pain/CNS, and metabolic disorders. Different enzyme classes I have worked with include Kinases, Proteases, GPCRS and Reverse Transcriptase. I am currently finishing a doctorate in a premier European Laboratory.
