The Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin Award
Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin was a founder of the science of protein crystallography as well as a Nobel laureate. The Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin Award, sponsored by Genentech, is granted in recognition of exceptional contributions in protein science which profoundly influence our understanding of biology.
The Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin Award, sponsored by Genentech, is granted in recognition of exceptional contributions in protein science which profoundly influence our understanding of biology. The 2013 award was presented jointly to Dr. Christopher Hill (University of Utah School of Medicine) and Dr. Cynthia Wolberger (John Hopkins University School of Medicine) at the 27th Annual Symposium. Dr. Hill is recognized for his vital insights into difficult but important problems in structural biology, including the molecular mechanisms of the proteasome from systematic analysis of activation, HIV biogenesis and assembly, and ubiquitin specific enzymes. Dr. Wolberger is recognized for her outstanding achievements related to transcriptional regulation, including early studies of DNA protein recognition that revealed a structural basis for gene regulation, elucidation of the function of sirtuins, and recent efforts to establish the basis for regulating deubiquitinating activity.
