Carolyn R. Bertozzi, 2014

Atomic, Molecular, and Chemical Sciences: For transformative discoveries in the chemistry and biology of complex carbohydrates, and for innovating nanotechnologies to probe biological systems, optimize bioreactors, and develop tailored devices and materials.

Carolyn R. Bertozzi is honored for her significant scientific research contributions at the interface of chemistry, biology and nanoscience, including major advances in the chemistry and biology of complex carbohydrates, including the development of nanotechnologies and chemistries for probing biological systems, optimizing bioreactors, and innovating tailored devices and materials. These new biochemical synthetic methods have enabled many advances for biological and non-biological systems, including profiling changes in cell surface glycosylation, nanoscience-based modifications of cell function, and new diagnostic and materials synthesis approaches.
