Samuel  Liver


Sam graduated with a first class MChem degree in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Leeds in 2015. His final year project was supervised by Dr Stuart Warriner and focussed on investigating receptor-target signal recognition in the peroxisome import pathway.

Sam’s PhD was funded by EPSRC and the project focused on expanding the toolkit of reactions for activity-directed synthesis that will enable the efficient discovery of diverse bioactive small molecules. He moved onto a postdoctoral position with the group.
