caught in the actTSRI scientists solve elusive enzyme
A collaboration between The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI)
Professors Ian A. Wilson, Chi-Huey Wong, and their colleagues
in the Departments of Chemistry, Molecular Biology, and The
Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology has yielded one of the
best views ever of an enzyme caught in the act of catalyzing
a reaction on its substrate. This research should prove invaluable
as a tool for drug synthesis.
Well Spent: Foundations Support Cutting-Edge Science
The research of Nobel laureate K. Barry Sharpless and other
innovative scientists at TSRI would not be possible without
support from foundations, donors, and agencies.
Individuals across campus react with excitement to the news
that TSRI investigator K. Barry Sharpless is a winner of the
2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
