[Thomas Poulos] Thomas Poulos

T. Poulos (U. California, Irvine, USA) is being recognized for his outstanding contribution in scientific research at the interface of chemistry and biology, particularly in the realm of biochemistry, biological chemistry and molecular biology. Poulos' research focuses on the structural biology of heme enzymes. He solved the first heme enzyme crystal structure, cytochrome c peroxidase, and the first cytochrome P450 crystal structure. In collaboration with R. Silverman (Northwestern U., USA), the Poulos group is also working in the area of NOS structure-based drug design in an effort to develop therapeutic agents for neurodegenerative diseases. Poulos' lecture will be delivered at the American Chemical Society national meeting in the fall of 2014.
