Dr Annamaria “Nanna” Lilienkampf is a Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry and the Director of Postgraduate Teaching at the School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh. She obtained her PhD in Organic Chemistry 2007 from University of Helsinki (with Prof. Kristiina Wähälä), with her research focusing on the design and synthesis of new 17b-HSD inhibitors. After two years of postdoctoral research on medicinal chemistry at University of Illinois at Chicago, with Prof. Alan P. Kozikowski, she moved to University of Edinburgh in 2009 to work with Prof Mark Bradley as a Marie Curie Fellow. In 2013, Dr Lilienkampf was first appointed as a Research and Teaching Fellow at the School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh, and then a Lecturer in Organic Chemistry. Her current research interests include biorthogonal and in vivo chemistries, particularly applications in novel pro-drug strategies and DNA/RNA labelling, as well as peptide chemistry and optical imaging agents.
