He then moved to Prague for two years, for a post-doc position working on synthesis of helicenes, followed by a post-doc at the University of Manchester, making catalysts for fuel cells. Nathan has subsequently spent over five years in pharmaceutical chemistry at Eli Lilly/AMRI.
“I want to do chemistry, I'm especially motivated by working on an environmental issue, and I'm impressed with how this company got started.”
We’re excited to have these amazing scientists join the Puraffinity and already benefitting from their great input.
