R. B. Williams Hosts Heterocyclic
Chemistry Conference,
T. Fukuyama and P. Wipf To Give
Award Lectures
Horst Kessler Receives Philip
Morris Research Award
Editorial Board Chairman Horst Kessler (Technical University of Munich) is
one of four winners of this years Philip
Morris
Research
Award
worth
100 000 E. He was recognized for his
contributions
to
structure elucidation of proteins by
means of NMR
spectroscopy. He
has
investigated
small peptides and
their interactions
in natural environments and the results are important
to the understandH. Kessler
ing of biocatalysis
and inhibition. As
a result, artificial surfaces may be stabilized to become biocompatible.
Kessler obtained his doctorate from
the University of T+bingen (Germany)
in 1966 under the guidance of Eugen
M+ller for work on copper salt catalysis.
During his habilitation, his interest was
first attracted to NMR spectroscopy:
Monitoring intramolecular mobility by
means of NMR spectroscopy. In 1971, he
became a Professor of Organic Chemistry in Frankfurt (Germany) and moved
to Munich in 1989. He is also a member
the Editorial Board of Angewandtes
sister journal ChemBioChem.
See his Minireview on “The Structures of Integrins and Integrin–Ligand
Complexes: Implications for Drug Design and Signal Transduction.”[1]

Robert B. Williams (Colorado State
University, USA) chairs the organizing
committee of the 19th International
Congress of Heterocyclic Chemistry
(August 10 – 15, 2003, Ft. Collins, CO).
The program includes award lectures by
two distinguished scientists:
. Tohru Fukuyama will receive the 2003
International Award in Heterocyclic
Chemistry. After graduation from
Nagoya University, he obtained his
PhD in 1977 under
the direction of Y.
Kishi
(Harvard
University). After
a
postdoctoral
time there, he
joined the faculty
of Rice University
(Houston,
TX)
and became a professor of pharmaT. Fukuyama
ceutical sciences at
the University of Tokyo in 1995. His
research is devoted to the total synthesis of complex natural products,
such as the “Facile Construction of NHydroxybenzazocine: Enantioselective Total Synthesis of (þ)FR900482”.[2]
. Peter Wipf will receive the 2003
International Junior Award in Heterocyclic Chemistry, also known as the
Katritzky Award. Wipf received his
doctorate from the
University of Zurich (Switzerland)
in 1987 and is currently the director
of the Combinatorial
Chemistry
Center at Pittsburgh University.
Besides heterocyclic, organometalP. Wipf
lic, and combinatorial chemistry, the research of his
group is focused on total syntheses of
marine natural products; an example
thereof is the “Total Synthesis of a
Stereoisomer of Bistramide C and
Assignment of Configuration of the
Natural Product.”[3] Their development of zirconium-based organome-
2003 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
tallic methods is summarized in a recent
Concept entitled “Novel Applications of
Alkenyl Zirconocenes”.[4]
Angewandte will publish a review on the
“Chemistry and Biology of Biosynthetic
Diels–Alder Reactions” by Williams in
the near future.
H. Wiezer Member of the Editorial
Board of Angewandte Chemie
The members of Angewandtes Editorial
Board serve a four-year term advising
the Editors on all aspects of the journals
contents and policies. The group represents chemistry in
its broadest meaning as found in
universities,
research institutes,
and industry. Major decisions are
subject to approval
by the German
Chemical Society
(GDCh).
H. Wiezer
When
Axel
Kleemann (formerly ASTA Medica)
retired from the Editorial Board of
Angewandte, a seat became available.
Following an invitation of the Board of
the German Chemical Society, Hartmut
Wiezer will succeed him.
Wiezer received his doctorate in
1974 from the University of GJttingen
(Germany) in the group of H.-W. Roesky. His thesis deals with organometallic–inorganic heterocyclic compounds.
In the following year, he started work
at Hoechst on polymer additives. When
the specialty chemicals division was
taken over by Clariant in 1997, he was
the head of the fine-chemicals division.
He has overseen research and development at Clariant since 2000.
