Christopher Walsh Wins Welch Award in Chemistry
A leader among the University's scientists is recognized for fundamental discoveries in enzyme chemistry.
Christopher T. Walsh, Kuhn professor of biological chemistry and molecular pharmacology at Harvard Medical School, has been named co-winner of the Welch Award, one of the most prestigious honors for research in chemistry. He and MIT's JoAnne Stubbe were recognized for work on enzymes, with applications for cancer therapies. Walsh's work has particular importance for research on antibiotics.
Walsh's research has been profiled in a Harvard Magazine feature on chemical biology, and in news reports on the medical school's approach to regulating conflicts of interest and the University's coordinated approach to scientific and engineering research and teaching overall.
