Andrew Lim, who starts his final year in October, was awarded a Commended Poster Prize at the 2011 UK PharmSci conference in Nottingham for his poster entitled 'Design and synthesis of CYP26 inhibitors as novel antiproliferative agents' .

 

During the Summer of 2010, Andrew worked in Dr Claire Simons's laboratory on the cytochrome P-26 (CYP26) project (computer modeling and synthesis) involving optimising the compounds for CYP selectivity and drug solubility. He achieved a considerable amount during the 8 week placement which was funded by the Nuffield Foundation.

More information about  CYP26 and related projects can be found in  Dr Simons's web pages.
