Student Success at the Computational Chemistry Summer School

Published: 19 Jun, 2023

Congratulations to Martina Tuberti, a second year PhD student in the School of Chemical and BioPharmaceutical Sciences, who won First Prize in the poster competition at the UCD Computational Chemistry Summer School 2023, for her poster entitled “Computational Design and Synthetic Studies of Peptide Fragments of Tau Protein Relevant to Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease”. Martina’s research is supervised by Dr Fintan Kelleher and Dr Gemma Kinsella.

The UCD Computational Chemistry Summer School 2023, took place on June 6th and 7th, in UCD. The day was an interactive event, encompassing several areas within the computational chemistry field and provided a flexible learning platform to attendees from a wide range of interest areas including chemistry, biology, biochemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, veterinary sciences and agriscience.

Along with a wide range of talks from experts in the area, there was also an opportunity for in-person attendees to showcase their research through poster presentations, which were judged by a review committee. We wish Martina continued success in her studies.
