Dr. Justin Bailey
Dr. Justin Bailey originally came from the province of British Columbia to pursue his undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Biology at the University of Alberta. In 2008, he moved on to pursue his Ph.D. in carbohydrate chemistry at the University of Alberta under the guidance of Prof. David R. Bundle. After completing his graduate studies, he served a short Industrial Postdoctoral Fellowship with the Alberta Glycomics Centre in collaboration with NovaDigm Therapeutics before accepting his current position as a Research Associate in Prof. Ralf Schirrmacher's laboratory in 2014. In 2018, Justin founded the university spin-off company Cerberus Radiopharmaceuticals with the focus of expanding and commercializing the intellectual property developed in Ralf's laboratory. His research interests include carbohydrate and medicinal chemistry, immunology, chemical biology, and of course, radiochemistry.
Andreas is from the warm and tranquil city of Edmonton. He acquired his undergraduate degree from the University of Alberta, during which time he completed a year-long internship at Gilead Sciences. He began pursing his PhD in 2016, under the supervision of Dr. Florence Williams, performing research on
the C-F functionalization of trifluoromethyl groups. He joined the Schirrmacher group in 2020, where he will apply his research to synthesis of fluorine-18 labelled compounds. When not cleaning the lab to an inexplicable degree, he can be found making or drinking beer, hiking in the nearby rocky mountains, or playing board games.
