TG Group say farewell to Salvador and Sandra

Dr. Sandra Bright and Dr. Salvador Blasco had their last day in the TG Group and were given a fond farewell by current members at specially organised lunches.

Sandra was the group’s biochemist who investigated group member’s compound’s biological activity for cancer treatment and signalling in the development of cancer therapeutic agents.

Salvador was the group’s resident crystallographer for a time and a post-doc with an indispensible expertise in electrochemistry Ru(II) polypyridyl chemistry, very much involved in the work of PhD students, Bjorn and Sandra, having also collaborated closely with Prof. Clive Williams in the Department of Biochemistry, TCD. He has contributed to the wealth of the group’s research with many publications including Chemical Science,2014,  6 (1), 457-471 (DOI: 10.1039/C4SC02474E ) and Angew.Chem. Int.Ed. 2016, 55,8938 –8943  (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201603213 )

We wish them all the best with their future endeavors.
