About the Winner


Thomas R Hoye grew up in New Wilmington, PA. He attended Bucknell University where research experiences in heterocyclic chemistry in the laboratories of Professor Harold W Heine convinced him to lay aside study of chemical engineering to concentrate on organic chemistry. He completed the BS/MS degrees in 1972 and matriculated to graduate studies in the laboratory of Professor Robert B Woodward at Harvard University, earning the PhD degree in 1976. That fall he joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota, where he has spent his entire independent career. 

He is a member of the graduate faculty of the Department of Medicinal Chemistry. In 2002 he was named the Merck Professor of Chemistry at Minnesota.
