Toyah Warnock - PGR Profile
In this profile, you'll be able to find out more about Toyah's research work so far!
In July 2016, Toyah graduated from Queen’s University Belfast with a MSci in chemistry, during which she completed a final year research project focused on enantioselective catalysis of oxidopyrylium species. Throughout her masters year, Toyah thoroughly enjoyed the autonomy and responsibility associated with completing a practical research project so it was a natural progression for her to continue towards a doctoral program!
Joining the Knipe lab as a PhD student in December 2017, Toyah has been focused on the field of Foldamers — unnatural oligomers that have a range of potential biomedical applications. Specifically, Toyah focuses on two major topics; protein mimetics for the use as protein-protein interaction inhibitors and novel antibiotic targets.
Outside of the lab, Toyah has completed the Chartered Management Institute level 7 qualification in Strategic Project Management and Leadership through the Graduate School at QUB. This allowed her to gain a board level position as regional secretary.
