Lhasa Limited shared knowledge shared progress

Dr. Natasha Murphy

Name: Dr. Natasha Murphy

Job Title: Scientist

I’m Natasha and I joined Lhasa in September 2015 to work as a scientist.

I studied at the University of Leeds, obtaining an MChem in Medicinal Chemistry in 2009 and a PhD in Chemistry in 2013. My PhD was focused on the synthesis of alpha helix mimetics to disrupt protein-protein interactions implicated in cancer tumour development. After my PhD I trained to teach on the School Direct program with the Leeds City Teaching School Alliance, obtaining a PGCE in Science certificate from the University of Cumbria. Following this, I was a science teacher at a school in Leeds teaching chemistry, biology and physics to secondary school pupils.

After missing the world of science, I decided to leave teaching to find a more research based role and was very fortunate to find a position here at Lhasa. This role offers me the opportunity to use the knowledge gained during my PhD and learn a new range of skills in the field of science, but out of the laboratory. Since joining Lhasa, I have had the opportunity to work on a metabolism data gathering project in Meteor, created patterns for forced degradation transformations in Zeneth and worked on alert development for skin sensitisation and mutagenicity in Derek.

Outside of work I spend most of my free time looking after my mini-zoo and renovating my house. I also really enjoy cooking (when I get the time) and visiting family over the Pennines.
