Peter Seeberger, Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern |
The 2015 Humanity in Science Award (www.humanityinscienceaward.com) was presented jointly to Peter Seeberger and Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern, directors at two collaborating Max Planck institutes in Germany, by our sister publication The Analytical Scientist. Their groundbreaking work in drug synthesis also won both scientists a spot on our 2015 Power List. By coupling flow chemistry with advanced chromatography methods, Seeberger and Seidel-Morgenstern were able to manufacture artemisinin-based therapies – the most effective drugs to treat malaria – from plant waste material, air and light. The science is innovative and exciting, and the potential impact of their project – and the concepts born from it – could really shake things up in the pharmaceutical industry.
