RSC Awards
In this issue we present some more
recipients of Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC, UK) awards...
An Adrien Albert Lectureship
has been awarded
to Dale Boger for
the use of heterocyclic chemistry to
improve biological
activity.
Boger
completed
his
PhD in 1980 at
Harvard UniversiD. Boger
ty (Massachusetts,
USA), then went on to Kansas and
Purdue (Indiana, USA) before becoming professor at The Scripps Research
Institute (California, USA) in 1991. His
research includes new synthetic methods, the total synthesis of natural products,[1a] and the interaction of DNA
and proteins with drugs.[1b]
Alois Frstner
has been distinguished with a
Centenary
Lectureship for his
pioneering work
in the development of new synthetic methods, in
particular
diene
and diyne metaA. F:rstner
thesis and its use
in natural product synthesis. He completed his PhD in 1987 at the Technische
Universit2t Graz (Austria) with H.
Weidmann and his habilitation there in
1992 following a postdoctoral period
with W. Oppolzer (Geneva, Switzer-
4850
land). Since 1993 he has led a research
group at the Max-Planck-Institut f:r
Kohlenforschung (MPI, M:lheim/Ruhr,
Germany). His Review on roseophilin
and prodigiosin alkaloids was the coverpicture article in issue 31/2003 of Angewandte Chemie.[2] F:rstner is on the
Academic Advisory Board of Advanced
Synthesis & Catalysis.
Edward Solomon has also been
awarded a Centenary Lectureship.
Solomon uses spectroscopy and MO
calculations
to
study the electronic structure of copper and iron cenE. Solomon
ters in proteins.
These sites are responsible for electron transfer and the
activation of oxygen.[3] He also studies
highly symmetrical transition-metal
complexes. Solomon completed his
PhD in 1972 at Princeton University
under the guidance of D. S. McClure
and was professor at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology (MIT, USA)
until 1982, when he moved to Stanford
University (California, USA).
Alexander Pines completed his PhD
in 1972 at the MIT and then took up a
position as professor of chemistry at
the University of
California in Berkeley. He has been
awarded a Faraday
Lectureship for his
work on NMR
spectroscopy—experiment and theory. Pines was a
A. Pines
leading figure in
the introduction of high-resolution solid-state NMR spectroscopy of dilute
spins (13C, 15N) by using cross-polarization. His recent work includes multiplequantum NMR spectroscopy. He is on
the Editorial Board of Chemistry—A
European Journal.
This year the Merck Research Lectureship has been awarded to Dudley
Williams for his contributions to biological chemistry, in particular for his
2003 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim

determination of
the structures and
modes of action of
the
vancomycin
group of antibiotics.[4]
Williams
completed
his
PhD in 1961 at the
University
of
Leeds (UK), then
D. Williams
carried out postdoctoral research
at Stanford University. He has been
professor of biological chemistry at the
University of Cambridge since 1964.
Another chemistry professor at the
University of Cambridge is the recipient
of a Robert Robinson Lectureship,
awarded to Ian Paterson for improving our understanding of the
stereochemistry of
symmetrical reactions and for the
total synthesis of a
variety of biologi- I. Paterson
cally active compounds.[5] Paterson completed his PhD
in 1979 with Ian Fleming in Cambridge
and then took up a postdoctoral position
with Gilbert Stock (New York, USA).
He was at University College London
from 1981 to 1983.
