Gary Bradshaw has gone to Spain on Industrial Placement for 3 months. As part of our ongoing participation in the 3DNet EU project, Gary is now on a 3-month secondment from Gadea Grupo Farmacéutico in Valladolid, Spain. The project is funded by a FP7-Marie Curie IAPP grant and is led by Dr Breandán Kennedy in UCD. While Gary is gaining valuable industrial experience he will be working on the synthesis of new molecular entities that will be tested for their potential as therapeutics for eye diseases. Gary will be working with Jorge López again; Jorge was seconded to our group in 2015 as part of the same project.
