(Medicinal Chemistry, 3rd year)

I developed a passion for science while I was in high school. It was exciting to witness the color change during a chemical reaction and get to know the rationale behind energy turning into mass. Doing medicinal chemistry at UNSW really is challenging, fun and exciting as it takes you into the journey of making a drug with possible anti-cancer properties from scratch. Its interdisciplinary nature also allows you to explore into different areas of science such as biology, chemistry and pharmacology.

I enjoy doing chemistry at UNSW due to its strong academic background, great access to educational resources however not lacking a fun and dynamic environment. I am really looking forward to doing MedChem research next year and hope to see you soon too!
