Dr Helen Burke Graduates


Helen with Barry from the Evans group

Congratulations to Helen Burke, who joined the group in 2012 as an IRCSET postgraduate scholar, and officially graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry earlier today. Helen carried out her research on ‘Synthetic Approaches Towards Thioester-Mediated Bioconjugation and Lanthanide-Based Glycoconjugate Probes’ jointly with Eoin Scanlan, producing several publications, the most recent of which appeared in Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry (DOI: 10.1039/C6OB01712F).

Since submitting her thesis, Helen has started work in industry in England. Everyone in the TG group would like to say farewell to Helen and we all wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours!
