Experience

Louise joined HGF in September 2018 and completed a part-time distance learning course at the University of Bournemouth in 2019, obtaining a postgraduate certificate in Intellectual Property Law.

Louise's background and qualifications are in chemistry. She graduated in 2013 with a First Class MSci honours degree in Chemistry and obtained her PhD in 2018, both from the University of Birmingham. Louise's PhD research involved the de novo design of peptide architectures for use as imaging agents.

Alongside her undergraduate studies, Louise also worked in industry, undertaking two summer placements in the Research and Development team at Scott Bader.

During her PhD she spent two months working with collaborators in San Sebastian. This work was presented at several international conferences and resulted in a number of publications.

Following the completion of her PhD, Louise completed two research fellow posts at the University of Birmingham, the first in the School of Chemistry and the second in the Institute of Microbiology and Infection. Here she explored topical treatments for age-related macular degeneration, presenting her work at the ARVO Annual Meeting in Hawaii. Alongside this project, she assisted in researching the development of smart coatings for implant materials.
