Siddique recently graduated from The University of Dundee with a degree in BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences. During his studies he was introduced to the process of ubiquitylation and became fascinated with how this system can be manipulated and utilised within scientific applications such as drug discovery. After conducting a project in the lab of Dr Satpal Virdee at the MRC PPU where he worked on developing an activity-based probe to study E3 ligases, Siddique decided to undertake a summer placement in the Ciulli lab to learn more about PROTACs and their development. In his spare time, Siddique enjoys photography and reading. También esta aprendiendo Español.
