Abbie  Leggott

Abbie graduated with a first class MChem degree in Chemistry from the University of Leeds in 2017. Her final year project was supervised by Prof Adam Nelson and focussed on using activity-directed synthesis to discover novel modulators for the nuclear receptor, RORgt. Abbie’s PhD is funded by EPSRC and will focus on expanding the activity-directed synthesis platform by developing small, natural product-like compounds for a variety of interesting targets, yet to be used in conjunction with this technique.
