Benjamin F. Cravatt, the Gilula Chair in Chemical Biology and professor of chemistry at Scripps Research in California, is the winner of the 2019 A. Ian Scott Medal, presented by the ACS Texas A&M Section and Texas A&M University’s department of chemistry. The award recognizes excellence in biological chemistry research.
