Dr Simon N G Tyler

Simon obtained an MA in Natural Sciences (Chemistry) from Hertford College, Oxford in 1995 and earned a PhD in 1998 with a thesis entitled Asymmetric Synthesis Using Enantiopure Dihydro-2H-1,4-oxazin-2-one Templates after research in the group of Prof. Laurence Harwood. Then followed a two-year post-doctoral stint in the laboratory of Prof. Barry M. Trost at Stanford University, CA where he carried out studies on the asymmetric catalysis of the Claisen rearrangement. In 2001, Simon joined Process R&D in AstraZeneca and rose to become an Associate Principal Scientist, gaining significant experience of the multi-disciplinary needs of early drug development projects in particular, and providing leadership through vision, participation and affiliation. He is an innovative scientist, with a history of exploiting opportunities and solving problems through his knowledge of chemical synthesis, and process development.
