Norman Heatley Award for Mark Howarth

Professor Mark Howarth

Professor Mark Howarth

Professor Mark Howarth has been awarded the Norman Heatley Award 2017 from the Royal Society of Chemistry. This Award was established to recognise and promote the importance of inter- and multi-disciplinary research between chemistry and the life sciences. Norman Heatley worked at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology in Oxford and was a key figure in establishing the production of penicillin, enabling its use as an antibiotic.

Mark was given this award for the creation of a new family of irreversible protein interactions, with wide ranging applications including diagnostics and vaccine development.

Mark will be presented with a medal and undertake a UK lecture tour later on this year.
