Dr  Teresa  Damiano

Teresa obtained her PhD from the University of Geneva (Switzerland). Her research was focussed on the total synthesis of threazolamine via a photochemical key step. After a period as a Marie Curie Fellow at Aventis Pharma (France) she joined the group of Prof. Nelson in May 2005 as a post-doctoral fellow. Her work focussed on the synthesis of GSK-3beta inhibitor libraries and in the elucidation of the role of protein kinases in the self-renewal of murine stem cells (in collaboration with Prof. Melanie Welham, University of Bath).  Teresa was supported by BBSRC.  Teresa moved in February 2007 to a synthetic chemistry position with Quidd, a company in Rouen, France.
