The EFMC is excited to announce the winner of the first EFMC-WuXi AppTec Award for Excellence in Chemical Biology:
- Prof. Gonçalo Bernardes (University of Cambridge, UK & IMM Lisboa, Portugal)
For his ground-breaking contributions to the field of chemical biology and cancer biology with meCLICK-Seq, a substrate-hijacking and RNA degradation strategy for the study of RNA methylation, and small molecules that are efficacious in vivo using platinum activators. His innovative research pursues key questions in chemistry and molecular medicine by using innovative strategies that bridge disciplines and inspire the programmes of other researchers.
The Award consists of a diploma, € 7.500 and an invitation to present a lecture at the EFMC International Symposium in Chemical Biology.
The 2023 Award will be presented at the EFMC-ISCB 2023, which will be held in Basel, Switzerland on November 16-18, 2023.
