We are delighted to welcome to the team Professor Sally-Ann Poulsen, new MedChemComm Associate Editor.
Professor Poulsen’s research focuses on the development of new chemical probes, medicinal chemistry targeting cancer and infectious disease, and on fragment screening using native state mass spectrometry. You can find out more on her webpage.
Sally-Ann received her PhD in Medicinal Chemistry from Griffith University, before undertaking a Royal Society & National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Howard Florey Research Fellowship at the University of Cambridge. On returning to Australia, she was awarded an Australian Research Council QEII Fellowship, followed by an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship, and is now Professor of Chemical Biology and acting Deputy Director at Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD), Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.
Professor Poulsen is also a Fellow of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) (2017), Chair elect of the RACI Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology Division and is a global council member of the International Chemical Biology Society.
Upon joining the MedChemComm team, Poulsen commented,
“I value research integrity and am truly excited to have an opportunity to help MedChemComm to share the wonderful science that is generated by the global medicinal chemistry community.”
