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.

It is a very important course which has helped me a lot
By Samuel B. on 10. January 2021 for Chemistry: Introduction

It is a super complete course, I think the only thing missing is to do an exercise at the end of the class in my opinion they help the students a lot.

Mechanisms should be very clear and for determining the lecturer must use a mouse curser
By Mohammad zia Z. on 14. December 2020 for Chemistry: Introduction

Every concept is not fully clear, the teacher doesn't go with mechanisms, even he doesn't use a mouse for determining about what on screen he's takin' about. For medical students.

Great content
By Marco G. on 16. November 2020 for Chemistry: Introduction

Great content. Great performance, I would only change the speed of his speech..., a little bit fast to me. Everything else perfect!

Improvement of slides possible
By Janine T. on 10. October 2020 for Chemistry: Introduction

I really like how you explain the concepts, I realized though that on some slides, there are too long sentences. Sometimes I don't really read them because I need to focus on what you say. It would be great if less words would be on the slides but in a way that is still informative. But all in all, I'm enjoying the course a lot and you did a way better job explaining the concept of shells and orbitals, than my chemistry professor did. Thanks a lot.
