AJB’s passion is chemistry; and applying it to the most pressing needs of the human race. He is an associate professor at the the Univ. of Evora. He has over 130 publications/communications (includes books papers, patents, editorials and presentations at conferences, etc), has coordinated many projects and supervised several students. He has a successful track record in drug discovery in the area of Alzheimer's disease and a strong interest in sustainable catalytic processes to achieve this objective. He founded Chiratecnics (www.chirarecnics.com) in 2009, is the chairman of the International Symposium on Synthesis and Catalysis series, is an editor at Open Chemistry (De Gruyter) and is a Chemistry Europe fellow.
