Upon completion of my PhD in Denmark, I wanted to further build on my knowledge and experience in synthetic organic chemistry. The Marie Curie fellowship gave me the chance to work on an exciting research project with potential applications in the treatment of allergic disorders. As an added bonus, this would also bring me closer to my girlfriend who lives in London.

Because doing excellent research means living in an excellent environment, Marie Curie Actions allow their fellows to integrate their private and professional lives. This is fitting for Jimmy, who works on a new series of small drug-like molecules based on natural products for potential anti-asthma/allergy therapeutic applications. Improving the life of allergy sufferers.
