The Gunnlaugsson Group welcomes the start of the new academic year and, with it, the arrival of new members of the group! This year, in fact two students will start their PhD projects in the TG group, Shauna Donohoe and Deirdre McAdams. For Deirdre it is a return, as she completed her final year research project in the TG group before graduating in Medicinal Chemistry in 2016. After graduating, Deirdre worked in the USA. Shauna graduated in Chemistry in Maynooth University in the group of former group member Rob Elmes. Both of them have been awarded with the Irish Research Council Scholarship and will work respectively with Ruthenium polypyridyl complexes for biological applications and with ligands based on 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid and BTP motifs.
Together with Deirdre and Shauna, the TG Group welcomes Irene de la Iglesias, an Erasmus Master Student from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Irene will work on tripodal urea systems for her final research project.
Good Work and once again welcome to the TG group!
