in 2006. Wong serves on the editorial
boards of Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis and Chemistry—An Asian Journal.
DuPont Science Prize for
N. Martn
Cotton Medal for C.-H. Wong
Chi-Huey Wong (The Scripps Research
Institute, La Jolla, USA, and President
of Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan) is
the recipient of the F. A. Cotton Medal
from the American Chemical Society
and the chemistry department of Texas
A&M University. Wong is recognized
for his contributions to chemical and
enzymatic methods for the synthesis of
biologically active compounds. Wong,s
research group also studies carbohydrate-mediated recognition processes,
drug discovery, as well as carbohydrate
microarrays for high-throughput analysis and the study of reaction mechanisms. Wong recently reported in ChemBioChem on the design and synthesis of
highly active SARS-CoV 3CL protease
inhibitors[1a] and in Angewandte Chemie on secondgeneration sugar-assisted
peptide coupling for the
synthesis of cysteine-containing glycopeptides.[1b]
Wong studied chemistry at the Taiwan National
University and received
his PhD in 1982 from the
Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (Cambridge,
C.-H. Wong
MA, USA) in the research
group of G. M. Whitesides. He moved,
together with his doctoral advisor,
within Cambridge to Harvard University to undertake postdoctoral research
and in 1983 became an assistant professor at Texas A&M University. He rose
to full professor there before answering
the call in 1989 to the Scripps Institute.
Since 2003 he has also led the Genomics
Research Center of the Academia
Sinica, of which he became president
Nazario Mart;n (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) has received the
Premio DuPont de la Ciencia 2007 for
the synthesis of new compounds for
photoinduced charge transfer, which
could find applications in photovoltaics. Mart;n completed his PhD in
chemistry at the
Universidad Complutense in 1984
under the supervision of C. Seoane
and worked from
1987 to 1988 with
M. Hanack (Uni- N. Mart;n
versit>t T?bingen)
on conducting organic materials. In 1994
he was a visiting professor in the group
of F. Wudl at the University of California in Santa Barbara. Mart;n is president
of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (Real Sociedad EspaBola de Qu;mica), which is a co-owner of the European journals of Wiley-VCH such as
Chemistry—A European Journal.
Mart;n,s research interests range
from materials, such as fullerenes,
carbon nanotubes, p-conjugated systems
as molecular wires, and electroactive
materials, to electron-transfer processes
and photovoltaic applications. He
reported in European Journal of
Organic Chemistry on aminopyrimidine-based donor–acceptor chromophores and their push–pull or aromatic
behavior,[2a] and his Communication in
Angewandte Chemie on the self-organization of electroactive materials by a
supromolecular head-to-tail acceptor
polymer will be featured on the cover
of an upcoming issue (February
well as the Genencor Award in Enzyme
Engineering 2007 for her works on
directed evolution. She also studies biosynthetic pathways, for example, of
carotinoids and genetic regulatory circuits. Her research group also develops
software for modeling circuits and networks. She recently reported in Angewandte Chemie and in Advanced Synthesis & Catalysis on the alkane hydroxylating cytochrome P450BM3.[3]
After studying mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton University,
worked at the
Research Institute in Golden,
1980, she continued her studies
with a focus on
her PhD in 1985
F. Arnold
in the group of
Henry Blanch at the University of
California, Berkeley. She then undertook postdoctoral research with Ignacio
Tinoco (Berkeley) and Jack Richards
(Caltech) before becoming assistant
professor in 1987 at Caltech, where she
is now Professor of Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry. Arnold is a
member of the US National Academy
of Engineering and of the editorial
board of ChemBioChem.
