Hung-wen (Ben) Liu,George H. Regents Chair in Drug Design and professor of pharmacy, chemistry, and biochemistry at the University of Texas, Austin, has been awarded the 2011 A. I. Scott Medal for Excellence in Biological Chemistry Research in recognition of his outstanding research on the mechanistic enzymology of deoxysugar, fosfomycin, and spinosyn biosynthesis.

The medal is given by the ACS Texas A&M University Section and the Texas A&M chemistry department. Liu’s research focuses on clarifying the chemical mechanisms of enzymes that influence unusual and physiologically important steps in the biosynthetic pathways of natural products.

The medal honors A. Ian Scott, who is renowned for his work in biosynthetic investigation. Liu received the gold medal during an awards ceremony at Texas A&M on Oct. 7, 2011.
