Laura completed her PhD at the University of Greenwich in the pharmaceutical research department of Medway Sciences. She joined the University of Huddersfield in 2003 as a lecturer in pharmaceutical science and is currently the Course Leader for the MSci and BSc (Hons) Pharmaceutical Sciences. Laura is heavily involved in the RSC, current Chair of the local section, a Benevolent Volunteer Visitor and a former member of Council. She is a member of the RSC, a member of the APS, a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a National Public Engagement Ambassador (NCCPE).
Laura has an active research group investigating phenomena at the interface of chemistry and pharmaceutics, developing analytical techniques, characterising chemical interactions and enhancing formulations, all funded through external sources. Her work in the area of public engagement has lead to several recent public lectures and media presentations.
In 2011 Laura was awarded the JPAG Analytical Science Award for her pharmaceutical research, the British Science Association Darwin Award for public engagement and the Intelligent Formulation Award for the promotion of formulation.
Development of quantitative structure activity relationships for new chemical entities through the use of calorimetry.
Improvement of chromatographic techniques in pharmaceutical preformulation.
Development of novel pharmaceutical formulations.
