Francisco José Aguilar TroyanoOrganische Chemie
Brief biographical details
Fran studied chemistry at the University of Jaén (Spain), where he graduated in 2016. During this time, he carried out an 8 months internship as a laboratory assistant at BBraun Medical Laboratories (Jaén). For his Master studies he moved to Granada. There, he carried out his Master's thesis under the supervision of Luisa Carlota López, working on the development of new bioisosteric compounds with potential inhibitory activity in Choline-Kinase. In 2018, he joined Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, in Toledo (Spain), as junior research scientist, where he worked on the area of neuroscience applied to Alzheimer’s Disease. In January 2019, he joined the Gómez-Suárez group for his PhD where he is currently studyingthe new amino acid synthesis and the development of novel deoxyfunctionalization nethodologies.
