Saidu Kamara

DPhil Interdisciplinary Bioscience student


Saidu studied MSci Chemistry at Imperial College London and carried out his master's project in the Bode Group at ETH Zürich. There, he developed ylide protecting groups for aspartic acid side chains for use in solid-phase peptide synthesis.


Current work involves synthesis of photosensitizers, which could be used to induced specific cell death modes via organelle targeting and subsequently induce immune cell activation.
