January 13, 2022 by Dan Haves

Professor Scott Prosser is the winner of the 2022 Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Lectureship Award from the Chemical Institute of Canada. 

This award, which was created in 2013, is presented to a scientist who has made a distinguished contribution to the field of biological or medicinal chemistry within the past five years while working in Canada.

Prosser is being recognized for his contributions to NMR spectroscopy, biophysics and biochemistry, as well as his work on G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) activation and pharmacology that has strengthened our understanding of the molecular dynamics involved in controlling their response to drugs.

He joins Professor Andrew Wooley (2013) as previous winners of this award from the department of chemistry.
