Adam Le Gresley, PhD

Dr. Adam Le Gresley is Associate Professor in the department of Pharmacy and Chemistry at Kingston University London.
Le Gresley was awarded his PhD in supramolecular organic chemistry by the University of Surrey in 2004 and carried out his postdoctoral research on photolabile compounds at Drexel College of Medicine in Philadelphia, USA, funded by the NIH.

He was appointed to the Faculty of Science at Kingston University in 2009, where he has been teaching on U/G and P/G courses within chemistry, pharmacy and the biological sciences for the last 6 years. In addition to teaching, Le Gresley maintains a small research group, funded by a number of industrial partners including GlaxoSMithKline with interests in NMR metabolomics, the synthesis of new in vitro diagnostic probes for problem pathogens and novel Rab7 inhibitors for the treatment of diabetes.
He is a regular reviewer for a number of peer-reviewed journals and has contributed to the development of courses across the faculty. Le Gresley was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2011 and subsequently to Associate Professor in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry in 2013.

La importancia de la química no debe ser subestimado en la práctica médica, y las ciencias naturales
By Padme A. on 12. May 2019 for Overview – Introduction to Chemistry

Si la Chemistry hubiera sido explicada de esa forma en mi Children Process, entender su importancia pudo haberme ahorrado mi vital time, y tener una vida more easy.

By Aziza S. on 02. January 2019 for Atom – Introduction to Chemistry

Great lecture with simple explanations for the freshman. Like it!

By Ioannis B. on 14. October 2018 for Hybridization – Chemical Bonding

This lecture offers only the very basic principles for understanding the concept of hybridisation with very little examples. The lecturer himself seems as if he reads notes off a text book out loud without providing appropriate explanation on the idea behind the way that hybridisation works in interacting atoms. Also, providing problem-solving exercises (like at the end of lecture 12. Covalent Bonds - Quantum Numbers), as well as, the answers to those questions - so that someone can mark their own responses - is an essential part of teaching and learning I hope we can agree.

It states the concepts very clear, i would love to have him as a professor
