Dr. Gonçalo Bernardes wins the 2018 Emerging Investigator Lectureship

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Gonçalo Bernardes has been selected to receive the 2018 MedChemComm Emerging Investigator Lectureship

The lectureship was open to any candidate who received their PhD in 2008 or later and have made a significant contribution to medicinal chemistry in their early career. The Editorial Board feel that his substantial contributions to the chemistry of protein conjugates, and his impact on the field of antibody conjugates make him an excellent choice for this year’s lectureship.

On being informed of his selection Dr. Bernardes said:

I am honoured to receive this distinction from an organisation I admire so much and so incredibly proud of the work of my entire research group at Cambridge and iMM Lisbon.”

Dr. Bernardes will give his lecture later this year at a conference to be confirmed.
