Dr Sam Thompson
Junior Research Fellow
I received my MChem from Exeter College, Oxford (2004) spending my final year with Ben Davis in the Dyson Perrins laboratory, developing approaches to thio-ether linked glycoproteins. I moved to St Edmund's College, Cambridge for a PhD (2008) with Martin Smith working on cascade routes to polycyclic alkaloids. After returning to Oxford for a brief postdoctoral stay with Steve Davies and Angela Russell I took up my current position as a Junior Research Fellow at Pembroke College and postdoctoral assistant with Andrew Hamilton. My interests lie in the use of new synthetic methods to understand biological systems and application of this to biomedicinal problems.
