We are delighted to announce that Professor Dean Tantillo from the University of California, Davis (USA) is the winner of the 2011 NPR Lecture Award. Professor Tantillo was selected for his work in the field of enzymology.
“It is an honor to be chosen as the 2012 NPR lecturer,” Professor Tantillo commented on receiving the award. “My students at UC Davis have worked hard to show how theoretical chemistry can contribute to natural products research and I am delighted that a fantastic journal like NPR supports this growing part of the natural products community. Thanks!”
The conference at which the lecture will be delivered will be announced in due course.
The NPR Lecture Award is awarded to a researcher who has made a significant contribution to the field of natural products and who has also had some involvement with the journal. You can view Professor Tantillo’s recent article for NPR below:
