Medical Imaging

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training


Alex Rigby


In 2017, I graduated from Cardiff University with a Masters in Chemistry with a Year Abroad. During my third year, I travelled to the University of Toronto and worked for Prof Patrick Gunning, focusing on medicinal chemistry and organic synthesis, investigating the inhibition of the E1 activating enzyme UBA5. For my final year project, I worked for Dr Rebecca Melen looking investigating the use of phosphorus containing Lewis acids, and their potential use as catalysts for organic various reactions.

During my time at the CDT for medical imaging, I hope to further develop my knowledge and gain the skills to equip me for a career in research.
