María González Pérez (New Path Molecular)

M_Gonzalez[1]I have obtained my first degree in Chemistry at University of Vigo in Spain and then completed a Master in Advanced Chemistry at University of Vigo and a PhD, under the supervision of Professor Yagamare Fall Diop and Professor Generosa Gómez Pacios in the same University (December 2014), working in the total synthesis of natural products with biological activity. During my PhD I have spent six months as a visiting PhD at Professor Steven Ley’s group in the University of Cambridge working in the development of a site-specific immobilisation technique of BRD-4 proteins. I have returned to the Ley group in March 2015 as industrial visitor from New Path Molecular Ltd.

My current research involves development of a project with Vanway company.
