IYC Interests:Encourage interest of young people in chemistry
I am a recently-retired Biochemist working in Infectious Diseases, especially fungal diseases, where I had an interest in enzymes and in designing new antifungal drugs.
I am now working with Gresford primary School in rural NSW, Australia in a programme called "CSIRO Scientists in Schools". I help take science classes at the school one day a week for Kindergarten to year 6, and aim to interest the children in science, and even to encourage some to take a career path in science. It would be very exciting for them to be part of world-wide study programmes, and any new ideas would be most welcome.
