Karen Dodd graduated with a first class MChem degree from the University of Leeds in 2003. Karen is supported by EPSRC and Hoffmann-La Roche. Her PhD has involved a 3 month European placement at the Hoffmann-La Roche site in Basel, Switzerland.
Karen's PhD project was concerned with a total synthesis of the natural product Hemibrevetoxin B. She focussed on exemplifying the key step of our approach which is the first example of a desymmetrisation of a centrosymmetric molecule by carbon-carbon bond formation.
Karen moved on to a postdoctoral position with Dr Darren Dixon at the University of Manchester.
