Bruce Kemp awarded Leach Medal

Posted: 10th February 2016

Professor Bruce Kemp, Head of SVI’s Protein Chemistry and Metabolism Unit, has been awarded the prestigious 2016 Leach Medal at the 41st Lorne Conference on Protein Structure and Function. 

The Leach Medal is presented annually in honour of the eminent biochemist Professor Syd Leach (1920-2005), in recognition of scientific excellence.

Bruce joins the list of past Leach Medal recipients including Elizabeth Blackburn, David de Krester, Don Metcalf and SVI's Jack Martin.

Established by Professor Syd Leach in 1976, the Lorne Protein Conference brings together biochemists from around the world. 

The Medal is an acknowledgement of Bruce’s scientific standing. By any metric his work has had an enormous impact internationally. His laboratory has tackled fundamental problems in the regulation of metabolism and signal transduction, exploiting the full spectrum of techniques available, ranging from protein chemistry, biochemistry, structural biology, physiology and genetically modified mice.

Congratulations to Bruce on this well-deserved achievement.
