1st Annual Distinguished Woman Scientist Seminar: Prof. JoAnne Stubbe of MIT
Professor Stubbe was nominated by WISAY members and then selected by the WISAY board as the winner of the first annual WISAY Distinguished Women Scientist Award. These are pictures from Dr. Stubbe's talk, "Radicals: Your life is in their hands."
Dr. Stubbe is the Novartis Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Biology at MIT. She is a pioneer in the field of nucleotide metabolism, particularly known for uncovering the mechanism behind ribonucleotide reductases. Her work has directly lead to the design of the important cancer fighting drug, gemcitabine.
Dr. Stubbe has received numerous awards, perhaps most prominent being the National Medal of Science in 2009, our nation's highest science honor.
We were all very honored to have Dr. Stubbe speak with us!
