Dr Maëva Pichon is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Chemical Biology at the University of Southampton.

After almost 4 years working on the synthesis of new multivalent iminosugars for the treatment of rare genetic diseases (mainly cystic fibrosis) and as probes to study multivalent inhibitor-glycosidase interactions, I am now working on the synthesis of new reagents for post-translational modifications of proteins. I am specifically interested in the study of cysteine sulfinic acid and its influence on protein properties and interactions.
