i am a PhD student in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of genoa, italy, attending the last year (expected thesis defense: february 2016). i previously got a in Medicinal Chemistry and technology at the University of genoa, focusing my interest in chemical synthesis on which i gave my thesis dissertation in july 2012, with the title “pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine derivatives as inhibitors of src and abl tyrosine kinases. . then i got a position at the University phd programme and i have been working there in an Organic chemistry Laboratory with the aim of synthesize small compounds active towards tyrosine kinases, such as abl, src, fyn and hck under prof. schenone’s guide. during my phd experience i spent 8 months at the auckland Cancer society research center of the University of auckland in new zealand, working on the synthesis of pi3 kinase inhibitors under prof. rewcastle supervision. i’ve been always interested pre-clinical and Clinical research, particularly in Medicinal Chemistry; my strongest skills are Organic Synthesis and Analysis: i’ve been trained in managing different synthesis techniques and in using different devices for Analysis (NMR, mass Spectroscopy) and Purification (isolera 1 Chromatography, HPLC), and of course i’m keen to learn new methods and techniques. i attended an intensive school of scientific management, which introduced me a basic knowledge about Intellectual Property, scientific management and technology valorization. i have a good knowledge in informatic and i hold the european computer driving licence. i’m open minded and i would like to work abroad, without any restriction. i can speak/write italian and English, but i would learn any other language, if required. andrea desogus
