Peter Stang: Building molecules
Peter Stang is the winner of the 2013 American Chemical Society Priestley Medal, the highest honor given by ACS, for his work building new molecules via “self-assembly," an approach inspired by nature. The molecules created by Stang's group could being used in medicines that exclusively target cancer cells, in chemical sensors that detect explosives and other promising applications.
