MChem Chemistry for Medicines Development

Nile Saunders

Destination: UniPetrol, largest oil refinery in the Czech Republic

I studied MChem Chemistry for Medicines Development. My final year research project was undertaken at the Institute of Cancer Therapeutics at the University of Bradford where I helped develop new anti- cancer drug candidates.

Whilst I found this both challenging and exciting, I have now secured a job in a different field working for UniPetrol at the largest oil refinery in the Czech Republic. Here I will initially be researching new water purifying techniques using nano chemistry and later on, the development of new fuels. I plan to use this experience to eventually undertake a PhD as I would like to pursue a career in academia.
