Dr  Ho Yin (John)  Li

John undertook a MChem degree at the University of Sheffield including a year spent at GlaxoSmithKline at the Harlow site. His final year project was conducted under the supervision of Dr Jennifer Burnham, and focused on the investigation of the phosphorus-nitrogen bonding structures in saturated phosphazanes.
 
John was supported by a grant from EPSRC (£600k) held by Steve Marsden and Adam Nelson. His project involved the development of new methods for the synthesis of arrays of potentially bioactive molecules, and involves major collaboration with GSK. This grant enabled the synthesis of libraries of bioactive molecules, an area which is key to the development of Chemical Genetics at the University of Leeds.
