The International Carbohydrate Organization is delighted to announce that the Roy L. Whistler International Award in Carbohydrate Chemistry for 2016 has been awarded to Professor Benjamin G. Davis, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, UK.
In 1984, the International Carbohydrate Organization established the Award in honour of Professor Roy L. Whistler, to recognize scientists ‘who have made contributions of excellence in carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry and with promise of continuing significant contributions’. The Award is recognized with a plaque, a cheque for US $25,000, and an invitation to present the opening lecture at the International Carbohydrate Symposium (ICS). The next ICS will be held in New Orleans, USA from July 17 to 22, 2016.
