The Protein Society proudly announces its 8th annual award: The Marie Maynard Daly Award. This award recognizes Dr. Daly, who conducted pioneering studies of protein synthesis, histone biochemistry, and the relationships between hypertension, high cholesterol, and atherosclerosis. Dr. Daly was a trailblazer as the first black woman in the United States to receive a Ph.D. in chemistry (Columbia University); she also actively promoted diversification in STEM. The Marie Maynard Daly Award will recognize groundbreaking research at the interface between protein science and human health.
Nominations for the 2023 Annual Awards will open May 2022.
