Lesley is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). After obtaining her MChem from the University of York and PhD from the University of East Anglia (UEA), Lesley worked at UEA as a Lecturer in Medicinal Chemistry. In 2017, she joined QMUL and took a leading role in the delivery of the Pharmaceutical Chemistry programs. Her research interests are focused on small molecule modulation of protein-protein interactions and she recently published a new approach to discovering modulators of α-helix-mediated protein-protein interactions (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2017, 56, 10446–10450). Lesley is also passionate about enhancing student learning, widening participation and outreach and she is actively involved in a number of projects.
The mini-lecture will highlight some of the research strengths and expertise of the Chemistry Department at QMUL in areas such as synthesis, computational chemistry, drug discovery and advanced functional materials. In addition, our unique MSc in Chemical Research will be presented.
