Dr Tameryn Stringer, fixed-term lecturer (2021-present)
Tameryn conducted her Ph.D. on the development of metal-based antimalarials at the University of Cape Town, South Africa and graduated in 2014. She worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Cape Town until 2017 and also conducted postdoctoral research in Bioorganometallic chemistry at Lund University between 2017 and 2018. In 2020, she moved to the UK to take up the position of Teaching and Research Fellow at the University of Leeds until she moved to the University of East Anglia in August of 2021. Tameryn is a synthetic chemist with expertise in the design, synthesis and characterisation of organic and metal-based compounds as potential biological agents. Tameryn’s research interest involves working towards the development of metallodrugs to combat cancer as well as infectious diseases, including malaria. She is also interested in understanding the mechanism of action and identifying the biological targets of these compounds by means of developing chemical probes and using chemical biology approaches to do so.
