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.

goes too fast/vague
By Vinas P. on 30. March 2017 for Chemistry: Introduction

did a good job explaining basic atomic structure but fails to explain what an atom really looks like. Jumps into the technicalities and skims through them too quickly. I had to consult various other sources to fully understand the concept; not something I should have to do with a paid service.

very good content. vibe just felt too serious. i recommend this to anyone who needs a refresh.

Excellent for a Quick Review/Reminder
By Farhan R. on 15. August 2016 for Chemistry: Introduction

It was a little rushed in places, feeling more like a quick review than actual teaching, but for the most part it was great. The professor explained things better than most of my teachers, and at the end of the day I am leaving the course with a legit grasp of whatever he covered. I would recommend this as a refresher for some of the major concepts of basic chemistry, but probably is not the best place to learn things from scratch.

Very helpful

It was very helpful and the professor did a better job explaining the concepts than the online course I am taking. Thank you!
