Martin graduated with a 1st class MChem degree from University of Leeds 2007. He studied for his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Adam Nelson at the University of Leeds working towards an integrated in silico design and diversity-oriented synthesis approach to generate novel platensimycin analogues. Since graduating in 2011 Martin has worked at PolyTherics developing antibody-based anti-cancer agents and as a post doc with Dr Robin Bon at the University of Leeds developing novel imaging agents for imaging cardiovascular disease using MRI.


Martin joined the MICL in 2014 as part of a 4 year post doctoral training program in radiochemistry to develop imaging agents for neuropsychiatric disease that will include a 5 month secondment working in Vic Pike’s group at the NIH in the USA.
