History of the Award
The George & Christine Sosnovsky Award in Cancer Therapy recognises their contributions to the chemical sciences community.
Her research included: investigating properties of metals and semiconductors, polycrystalline and single crystal organic solids and thin films. Her background comprises of studies of the effects of crystal orientation, surface structure and lattice defects on the catalytic properties of solids.
More recently, his interests have focused on medicinal chemistry, specifically the structure-activity relationships of anticancer drugs involving design and biological evaluations of new anticancer drugs. Additionally there were pursuits in the synthesis of contrast-enhancing agents for diagnostic purposes.
