Synthetic organic chemistry @ Queen's University Belfast
Toyah graduated from Queen’s University Belfast with a MSci chemistry in July 2016. Her final year research project focussed on enantioselective catalysis of oxidopyrylium species.
Joining the Knipe lab as a PhD student in December 2017, she is now researching protein mimetics, with a focus on β-strand analogues.
Outside the lab Toyah can often be found on long walks with her dog, Molly or building flat pack furniture, which she is extremely talented at.
Jamie attained his MSci in Medicinal Chemistry in July 2017 and began his PhD journey researching Enantioselective Organocatalysis with the Knipe Lab in October. When he’s not partaking in his favourite pastime in the world (column chromatography…!) he is an avid Arsenal supporter and Metallica fan.
