Julius Rebek Jr. Elected to The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences

Julius Rebek Jr., professor at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and director of the TSRI Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology, has been elected to The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences as a Foreign Member in its Fourth Class for Chemistry, a distinction that recognizes successful research achievements and outstanding services to science. 

Rebek’s research examines the basic questions of molecular recognition, self-assembly, catalysis and complementarity by designing novel organic molecular nanocapsules and synthetic receptors.

The Academy, established in 1739, currently has 450 Swedish and 175 foreign members. Those who are elected as members are involved in the Academy’s committees and panels, as well as in the processes of selecting candidates for Academy prizes. Every year, the Academy awards the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry, the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel and a number of other large prizes.

For more information on Rebek’s work, please visit his faculty webpage and lab website.
