Julie Brender Trads

During her PhD studies, Julie Brender Trads has worked with development of new acyl transfer reagents. An activatable acyl transfer reagent relying on oxidative aromatization was developed and used in the synthesis of amides, esters and thioesters.

Julie Brender Trads has also synthesized photochromic ligands for use in photopharmacology and investigated the compounds' ability to induce light dependent control of GIRK channels, farnesoid X receptors (FXR) and hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels.

The PhD degree was completed at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), Science and Technology, Aarhus University.

This résumé was prepared by the PhD student.
