Helen Burke Successfully Defends her PhD Thesis

Helen Burke, who joined the group in 2012 as an IRCSET postgraduate scholar, defended her PhD thesis, entitled ‘Synthetic Approaches Towards Thioester-Mediated Bioconjugation and Lanthanide-Based Glycoconjugate Probes’, today.

The four year research project was conducted jointly with Eoin Scanlon as part of a fruitful collaboration which has seen her work appear in several publications, most recently in Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry. Helen’s examiners, Trinity’s Joanna McGouran and Tony D. James from the University of Bath, joined the research group for a reception in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute afterwards to celebrate.
