Dr  Joan  Mayol Llinas



Joan obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Barcelona in 2013. He spent his final year in the Department of Physical Chemistry. His project was focused on the development of computational techniques for the study of CDK4 inhibitors.

In 2014, he obtained a distinction in his master's degree in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Bath. His master's research project was focused on the synthesis and testing of a novel antibiotic for treating MRSA.

Joan's PhD focused on the development of CNS-relevant molecular scaffolds and it was supported by the University of Leeds 110 Anniversary Research Scholarship and by the industrial collaborator Takeda.
