Hermen Overkleeft wins the 2015 Jeremy Knowles Award

Prof. Hermen Overkleeft has been awarded the 2015 Jeremy Knowles Award of the Royal Society of Chemistry for his innovative and insightful development of activity-based protein probes for the imaging and identification of enzymes in health and disease.

The Jeremy Knowles Award is to recognise and promote the importance of inter- and multi-disciplinary research between chemistry and the life sciences. Founded in 1991, following a bequest from the late Professor Adrien Albert (formerly Professor of Chemistry at the Australian National University, Canberra), this award commemorates the work of eminent chemist and biochemist Jeremy Knowles, OBE.
