EFMC Prize for Young Medicinal Chemist in Academia

And the prize for the best young medicinal chemist in denmark goes to… MPCL!!!

The work we do in he group has recieved recognition at a national level this summer. We are proud to have had two MPCL graduates, Raoul Walther and Camilla Kaas Frich, compete for a spot in the European final of the “EFMC Prize for Young Medicinal Chemist in Academia”. Their PhD thesis were selected among the top three works in Denmark to be defended at the Danish Chemical Society Annual Meeting, held in Copenhaguen last June. Camilla presented her work on “Macromolecular prodrugs for antiviral therapy” and Raoul gave a talk about “Expanding the Utiliy of Prodrugs: Glucuronides as a tool to achieve localized drug delivery”.

The comitee selected Raoul to compete at the “6th EFMC Young Medicinal Chemist Symposium” for the title of best Young Medicinal Chemist in Europe.

Congratulations Raoul and Camilla on your work!

We wish the best of luck to Raoul in Athens!
