1st year PhD

Project: A universal chemical proteomic platform to uncover the impact of dynamic protein S‚Äźacylation in cancer


I am from Santander, a city on the northern coast of Spain, and I moved to UK almost five years ago to start an MSci in Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry at Imperial. Since then, I have had the possibility of working on several summer projects ranging from extracting and studying plant crystals, to synthesizing PROTACs, molecules designed to induce protein degradation. Now I have just started my PhD in the Tate Group on chemical biology. During my free time, you’ll find me at Imperial dance classes or cycling around London.
