History of the Award

Dr Christine Sosnovsky
The George & Christine Sosnovsky Award in Cancer Therapy recognises their contributions to the chemical sciences community. 

Dr Christine Sosnovsky's research experience has been extensive in the fields of surface chemistry and physics. She spent 8 years in Australia at the University of Melbourne and subsequently moved to America to pursue her research further and later deliver lectures also. 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.

Professor George Sosnovsky
Professor George Sosnovsky's research interests have covered a wide range of topics to include research and development of fungicides, herbicides and insecticides, amidine derivatives as antiradiation agents, free radical chemistry, oxidative phosphorylation reactions and the synthesis of spin-labeled phosphorous compounds of biological interest, including anticancer agents. 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.
