The next Inside Diamond open day will feature stalls and activities, a short introduction to Diamond and a tour of the machine. We expect the visit will last around two and a half hours. Booking for open days opens 6-8 weeks in advance of the event. Click here for more details.
My interest in drug design, discovery, delivery and development has always stayed with me. It was also during the course of my research career at the Pasteur Institute in France, Antisoma Ltd, and King’s College London working on peptides in cancer research, that I became more involved in structural characterisation of biomolecules using spectroscopic techniques. Acquiring all of these different experiences reinforced my acute interest in drug discovery and development programmes, especially in the field of drug delivery and formulation, where my collaborator and I were awarded a KCL Seed Funding grant to pursue proof of concept on a novel delivery system whilst running the University of London facility for chiroptical spectroscopy. During this time, the opportunity arose to join Diamond as a beamline scientist.
