Dr Bethany McCann

Dr Bethany McCann completed her PhD, titled ‘From Bug to Drug: Identification of novel inhibitors of pH signalling in the fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus’ in 2019. Her doctoral research was focused on identifying innovative methods required to find novel inhibitors of the pathogenically important pH signalling pathway of A. fumigatus. During this time a library of compounds was screened and a cohort with the ability to perturb pH signalling were identified. Additionally, Bethany undertook an industrial placement with Blueberry Therapeutics, through which establishment of compound mediated Structure-Activity relationships where identified.
