Research Summary

Samantha graduated from Randolph-Macon College (VA, USA) with an ACS-certified, BSc in Chemistry. She went on to Virginia Tech (VA, USA) for her PhD in chemistry, under the supervision of Prof. Karen J. Brewer. Samantha then moved across the pond to the Netherlands, where she worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Associate Prof. Sylvester Bonnet’s group at Leiden University. During her PhD and time in the NL she worked on light-activated metal-based complexes for applications in anti-cancer therapy.

In 2017, Samantha changed research direction and joined Associate Prof. Bart Cornelissen’s group in the Department of Oncology at the Radiobiology Research Institute. Her research now focusses on preclinical radiodiagnostics for imaging of pancreatic cancer.
