Peter G. Schultz, Scripps Research Institute, USA
Peter G. Schultz graduated from Caltech in 1979 and continued there for his doctoral degree (in 1984). He moved from University of California, Berkeley to The Scripps Research Institute in 1999 where he is currently the Scripps Professor of Chemistry. Schultz’s contributions to science include: (1) the discovery of catalytic antibodies, and their use to study fundamental mechanisms of biological catalysis and the evolution of binding and catalytic function; (2) the development and application of methods to add new building blocks (beyond the common twenty amino acids) to the genetic codes of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms; and (3) the development and application of molecular diversity technologies to problems in chemistry, biology and medicine.
