Streck is delighted to share that The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2022 to Carolyn Bertozzi, Ph.D., a former guest lecturer and recipient of the Streck Award. Bertozzi is Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor at Stanford University, CA.

Bertozzi received the Streck Award in 2021 in recognition of outstanding contributions at the Chemistry/Biology interface; in particular, for pioneering advances in bioorthogonal chemistry in glycoscience.

The Streck Award was established in 2016 through a partnership with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chemistry Department and Streck, a worldwide leader in the development of clinical diagnostic products. This award honors chemical innovations that have made significant impacts on biomedically-related research. The focus of this award builds on the research at Streck, as well as the research of the chemical biology and bioanalytical faculty at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chemistry Department.

The award is used to bring internationally recognized leaders in chemical biology to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.

Bertozzi developed click reactions that can be used inside living organisms. Her bioorthogonal reactions – which occur without disturbing the normal chemistry of the cell – are used globally to map how cells function. Some researchers are now investigating how these reactions can be used to diagnose and treat cancer.
