Congratulations to Future BRH academic Dr Anthony Green, who has been awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize for the design and evolution of enzymes using an expanded genetic code.
Anthony’s research group develop disruptive enzyme engineering methods to create enzymes with new catalytic functions, opening the door to a new world of sustainable biocatalytic transformations that were previously unachievable. They work in close collaboration with partners from across the chemical industry to translate fundamental discoveries into real world applications, with the aim of contributing to the development of a greener and more sustainable chemical industry.
The Royal Society of Chemistry’s Prizes and Awards are awarded in recognition of originality and impact of research, or for each winner’s contribution to the chemical sciences industry or education. They also acknowledge the importance of teamwork across the chemical sciences, as well as the abilities of individuals to develop successful collaborations.
