Romain Berthiot

After obtaining a BSc in Chemistry, I am now completing a MSc at the interface of chemistry, biology, and drug design at the University of Strasbourg, France. I chose this MSc because I want to solve real world health problems with methods that could be used in a clinical setting. I am looking for opportunities where I can use my expertise in chemistry and chemical biology to complete challenging projects while continuing my education by learning new techniques.
