Schroepfer Medal

The Centre for Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity is pleased to announce that Prof Steve Kelly has been awarded this year's Schroepfer Medal by the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS). He received his prize on the 2nd May 2016 during the AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo. This award not only recognises the achievements and impact of Prof Kelly's long and distinguished career, but also demonstrates the significance and excellence of his team's research.

The Schroepfer award was established to honour the memory of George J. Schroepfer, Jr., a leader in the sterol and lipid field for more than 40 years.  The award aims to foster Schroeper's ideals of personal integrity, high scientific standards, perseverance, and a strong spirit of survival, tempered by charm and wit.
