Professor John Lipscomb (Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics) has received the American Chemical Society’s 2014 Repligen Award in Chemistry and Biological Processes.This award recognizes outstanding research that contributes to the understanding of the structure, function, and mechanism of biological processes.
Professor Lipscomb’s research group uses MSI resources to study the structure and mechanism of oxygenase enzymes. They are currently involved in two projects, one that studies a series of dioxygenases enzymes and one involving methane monooxygenase. More information about these research projects can be found on the Lipscomb group’s abstract page on the MSI website.
