Kaddy Camara, Ph.D.

Technology Specialist

Overview

Kaddy Camara joined Clark+Elbing in 2019. Her work involves the drafting and prosecution of patent applications, primarily in the field of chemistry.

Kaddy’s doctoral research focused on the development and optimization of new and known methodologies for the synthesis of small heterocycles (oxetanes) and complex molecules (Glycosphingolipids). As a postdoctoral research associate at Boston University Center for Molecular Discovery (BU-CMD), Kaddy utilized molecular modeling techniques to synthesize novel small molecules that decrease production of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide as a therapeutic target for Alzheimer’s disease.

Kaddy is an inventor on two patent applications, and has co-authored original research articles in peer-reviewed journals, including Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, European Journal of Immunology, Bioorganic Medicinal Chemistry Letters, Nature Chemical Biology, Organic Letters and Journal of Organic Chemistry.
