Short personal activity proposal for the COST Action CA15135 (max 1000 characters)

The major focus of my PhD research was on the synthesis of novel multi-target drugs. I am very enthusiastic about expanding upon the work that I have carried out in this area and would very much appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with others working on this topic. I am at early stage in my research career and am actively attempting to pursue independent research. I would welcome any opportunity to discuss collaboration with other members of CA15135.
