Johanna is a researcher, primarily within Chemistry, working on the biophysical properties of PROTACs for use in medicinal chemistry. Her interest in drug development has grown throughout her undergraduate studies, particularly for manipulation of protein-protein interactions, allowing ‘undruggable’ targets to become more easily accessible.

As such, the South Coast Biosciences Doctoral Training Programme (SoCoBio DTP) is the perfect opportunity to work at the interface between chemistry and biology, developing these skills for drug discovery.

2020-present: PhD Biological Sciences, University of Southampton, UK.

2016-2020: MChem (Hons) Chemistry, University of Southampton, UK.

Research interests

I am interested in the development of novel antibiotic and cancer therapeutics, using in silico studies before synthesis and in vitro analysis of these compounds, as well as biophysical analysis (DSF, NMR, ITC etc)
