Zandile Nare

I am currently a Protein Scientist at a CDMO pharma company in central Scotland where I work to develop novel antibody-drug conjugates to treat cancer. I received my MSc degree in Drug Discovery and Translational Biology from the University of Edinburgh where I realized my interest in target-based drug discovery for infectious diseases. This led me to pursue my PhD in target-based drug discovery for neglected tropical diseases, including African sleeping sickness and the leishmaniases, also at The University of Edinburgh. Having worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific, Abcam, and in my current role, I am keen to leverage my experiences in industry and academia to improve global health by delivering life-changing products to fight and cure disease. I am especially fascinated with the use of protein engineering and integrative structural biology tools in the drug discovery process. Additionally, having worked as a freelance language editor and as a contributor to different science magazines and blogs, another one of my goals is to help other scientists effectively communicate their research to different audiences. I am passionate about all things food, powerlifting, and epic fantasy. You can always catch me on Twitter and Instagram under @znzan92 – let’s connect!
