Romain Lotthe

MSci student


Born and raised in Paris until his baccalaureate, Romain then moved to London to start his MSci in Chemistry (with International Programme) at University College London, UK. After spending the first two years of his degree in London, he undertook a year in Berlin at the Humboldt Universität, where he carried out his first six-month research project under the supervision of Prof Christian Hackenberger. This project on site-specific protein modification by chemoenzymatic ligation introduced him to the area of bioconjugation and inspired him to join the Booth lab to work on light-activated antibody-antisense oligonucleotide conjugates for his master’s thesis under the joint supervision of Dr Michael Booth, Prof Vijay Chudasama and Prof Jamie Baker. Romain joined the Booth lab at UCL in September 2022 for the final year of his MSci.

Research Interests
