University staff recipients of Royal Society of Chemistry awards
The RSC’s Council was recently pleased to announce the second year in the fourth cycle of awards made possible by the generous assistance of a number of industrial companies and other organisations:
CHEMISTRY – THE CHARMIAN MEDAL
for studies on the structure or mode of action of enzyme systems.
N S Scrutton CChem FRSC
for his contributions to the understanding of enzyme catalysis and in
particular providing experimental support for his ideas on hydrogen tunnelling
and protein dynamics as a key aspect of catalysis in hydrogen transfer
reactions in flavoenzymes’
Scrutton graduated from King’s College, London in 1985 and was awarded the
Sir William Robson prize. He obtained
his PhD at Cambridge as a Benefactors’ Scholar.
In 1988 he was elected Research Fellow at St John’s College and was

recipient of the Colworth Medal of the Biochemical Society.
His scientific interests include mechanistic, structural and quantum
enzymology, with particular interest in electron and hydrogen transfer
reactions in flavoproteins and quinoproteins.
