Aurélie Chabrun is a Senior Research Chemist, based at our BioCity laboratory in Nottingham. We asked Aurélie some questions to give you a flavour of her background, career and work with Charnwood Molecular:
What’s your background?
“I completed my masters at the University of Montpelier in the south of France. After that I worked for a company called Idenix (MSD group), before making the move to Nottingham and starting work for Charnwood Molecular at Bio City.”
What is your role at Charnwood Molecular?
“I am a Senior Research Chemist, currently working on a 12-month FTE project at Bio City.”
What do you consider your career highlights so far?
“I think my highlights so far have been rising to the challenge presented sometimes by my work in medicinal chemistry, finding a way to redesign synthetics or compounds makes my job very interesting.”
What do you do outside of the lab?
“I am a keen dancer and take part in swing dancing locally and in particular ‘Lindy hop’. I also have started indoor climbing and aim to train to the point of trying it outside one day!”
