Profile of Mrs Catherine Alder

o Catherine graduated from the University of Sheffield, and joined GSK Stevenage in 2006, after a period at MSD. In 2016 Catherine was awarded her Chartered Chemist status by the RSC and has been an active STEM ambassador for the last 7 years. Since joining GSK she has worked in various Med chem groups.
In 2012 she joined Green Chemistry, working on both in-house and external collaborations, such as the IMI:Chem21 project to improve the environmental impact of routes to APIs, While in Green Chemistry she worked closely with Med Chem to introduce changes earlier to ensure a longer term impact, and looked for opportunities to try newer technologies such as flow chemistry, synthetic biochemistry, or working with atom efficient gases.
In 2020 Catherine was shortlisted in the TechWomen100 awards and in the same year she joined the Discovery High Throughput Chemistry department in Medicinal Chemistry – where she has further used screening and her optimisation skills in 96 well plates formats, reducing the amount of waste due to the scale, to identify better reaction conditions and profiles to deliver target compounds.
