Congratulatory message from the Chair

On behalf of the entire Biochemistry Department I would like to congratulate our esteemed colleague Dr. Lewis Kay on winning the Gairdner International Award, Canada’s highest science prize. Kay’s work on the development and use of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques for investigating molecular motion and short lived conformations in large multiprotein complexes, or ‘seeing the unseeable’ to use the vernacular, has pushed boundaries and opened up new paradigms in macromolecular structure and function. All the best to Lewis as he continues his important research.
