Conor McCartin, PhD
Monoclonal Antibody Development
A Biotechnology graduate from the University of Galway, Ireland, Conor’s studies widened into the domain of Chemical Biology when he moved country to study for his master’s degree in the renowned Chemistry Faculty of the University of Strasbourg, France. From here, he continued to apply his interdisciplinary knowledge from these studies, as well as from several internships in fundamental cancer research, to his Ph.D. focused on developing and studying the mechanisms of new metal-based anti-cancer stem cell chemotherapeutics. This thesis partially revealed the mechanisms of interesting anti-cancer stem cell candidate molecules (described through four publications) and has been honored by prizes from both the Biological Society of Strasbourg and the University of Strasbourg. Since the conclusion of this Ph.D., Conor has since given leave to bench work in order to join ProteoGenix as an Account Manager focused on research and development of monoclonal antibodies.
