Ronald Breslow Award For Achievement In Biomimetic Chemistry
Research in Stephen J. Lippard’s lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology encompasses several areas of bioinorganic chemistry involving different metals, and he has received his share of awards for the excellence of that work. This award, however, recognizes a particular one of Lippard’s long-standing passions: the study of nonheme iron proteins such as dioxygen-carrying hemerythrin and dioxygen-activating methane monooxygenase, an enzyme that Lippard describes as “an amazing biomolecular machine that converts methane and dioxygen selectively . . .
