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.

Instructor is precise, thorough, presentations are easy to follow and understand. It is enjoyable learning. Thank you. Love it.

Mejorar la traducción.
By Nadia Rosalia A. on 23. July 2019 for Chemistry: Introduction

El curso esta perfecto hasta lo que he visto, el único problema es la traducción, al ser traducidos automáticamente (no por una persona) hay algunas cosas que no se entienden ni tienen sentido. Tarde un buen tiempo en entender lo que significa "shell" ya que en español no es "caparazón" como lo marca el traductor.

Excellent and precise to the point. I loved it. Thank you Dr. Gresley.

Enhanced understanding. Wish he talked about R and S configurations. The part was slightly confusing without the explanation of R and S
