Luke  Trask

Luke graduated from the University of Leeds with a first class BSc degree in Biochemistry in 2016. He then went on to study MSc Chemical Biology and Drug Design, also at Leeds. His Master’s research project was supervised by Prof. Adam Nelson and focussed on implementing and using photo-redox chemistry for activity-directed synthesis to enable the discovery of bioactive small molecules.
Luke’s PhD is funded through a BBSRC iCASE award (in collaboration with LifeArc) and his project will focus on the development of chemical tools using activity-directed synthesis to probe the biological roles of NEK6 and NEK7.
