About Camilla

Camilla graduated in 2020 from the University of Naples “Federico II” in Italy with a master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology. Her final year research project focused on exploiting a novel interrupted Ugi 3-CR for synthesising elusive N-alkyl-2,3-diaminoindole derivatives as potential NOD1 antagonists. In the same year, she started her PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences under the supervision of Dr Mariateresa Giustiniano. She is currently developing green synthetic methodologies to obtain drug-like scaffolds, with a particular interest in isocyanide chemistry and photochemical multicomponent processes. Since November 2022, Camilla has joined the Lam Research Group as a visiting student to learn more about the synthetic opportunities of applying electrochemistry as a green activation method
