Raysa Khan Tareque is a Bangladeshi scientist who aspires to develop the next generation of DNA technology. Raysa spent three months at Astra Zeneca Tocris labs working on the development of a BDZ-based probe, a reagent used in chemical analysis. “She gained an in-depth insight into the commercial and business aspects of medicinal chemistry during her industrial placement. It has been a steep learning curve, but she had thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience,” Raysa said. Cancer research is a personal topic to Raysa. “She lost her grandmother to cancer when she was 17. she had seen the effect cancer can had on families and the lives of people. Therefore, cancer research has always been something she felt drawn to.” Benzodiazepine analogues bind not only to the receptors in our central nervous system but also to a diverse array of other proteins. The compounds are easily soluble and easily distributed throughout the body, and could help bring about new research discoveries into cancer research and research into other diseases. Through participating in this program Tocris has expanded its network of collaborators and enabled a young scientist to gain experience of working in an industrial environment”, said Rob Felix, the Head of Product Development at Tocris. Raysa is now continuing her focus on medicinal chemistry cancer research as a Research Fellow at the University of Sussex. The Award was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council in partnership with Astra Zeneca Tocris (part of Bio-Techne Ltd) through an Industrial Cooperative Award in Science and Technology.
