Solvay: Chemistry for the Future Solvay Prize awarded to Professor Peter G. Schultz

The Chemistry for the Future Solvay Prize, a bi-annual EUR 300,000 prize created by the Belgium based Solvay Group, is awarded to Professor Peter G. Schultz, professor at the Scripps Research Institute in California, and Director of the California Institute for Biomedical Research.

The Chemistry for the Future Solvay Prize rewards a major scientific discovery that could shape tomorrow's chemistry and help human progress. It was announced on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the creation of the chemical company Solvay by Ernest Solvay, and to perpetuate the founder's commitment as a strong supporter of scientific research. It is intended to endorse basic research and underline the essential role of chemistry as a science and an industry to help solve some of the most pressing issues the world is facing.

Unanimous in their decision, the five jury members of the Solvay Prize, amongst them two Nobel prize winners, took into account several criteria including scientific excellence, potential and actual scientific and societal impact, and scientific activity.

The formal statement of the jury chaired by Hakan Wennerström, Professor at the University of Lund, motivates the decision as follows: "For Professor Schultz's multiple scientific contributions at the interface between chemistry and biology, in particular for the exploitation of molecular diversity and the rational expansion of the genetic code of the living organisms." Professor Schultz's ground breaking work is impacting many scientific fields, including biotechnology and medicine. It also has important implications for regenerative medicine, and the treatment of infectious disease, autoimmune disease and cancer.
