RECEIVED 30 AWARDS BETWEEN 1985-2000
Some main prize
The Thieme-IUPAC Prize is awarded every two years on the occasion of IUPAC's International Conference on Organic Synthesis (ICOS) to a scientist under 40 years of age, whose research has had a major impact on the field of synthetic organic chemistry. The Prize is sponsored jointly by Georg Thieme Verlag, IUPAC, and the Editors of Synthesis, Synlett, Science of Synthesis, and Houben-Weyl.
Biologists study pathways and networks by perturbing them and observing the result. Whereas these perturbations most often result from mutations in genetic investigations, they can also result from small organic molecules. Numerous examples exist of small molecules being used to explore immunology, yet these examples have been brought to light generally on a case-by-case basis. Rather than using small molecules on an ad hoc basis, Stuart Schreiber's laboratory is attempting to use them in a systematic way, so that virtually any area of biology can be examined with small molecules.
Beginning in the mid-1980‘s, Schreiber and his co-workers studied the molecular mechanisms of the immunosuppressive agents cyclosporin（环孢菌素）, FK506 and rapamycin（雷伯酶素）, which led to new insights into two signaling networks central to hematopoietic cell function. Using a synthetic analog of FK506, they were able to show that these immunosuppressants “bridge” two proteins. Both the complex of cyclosporin （环孢菌素）with its receptor, cyclophilin（亲环蛋白）, and the complex of FK506 with its receptor, FKBP12, bind the same protein, the protein phosphatase calcineurin（磷酸酶神经储钙蛋白）. This discovery, together with Gerald Crabtree's discovery of NFAT proteins, now known to be essential for immune function, heart development, and the acquisition of memory in the hippocampus.
Combining synthetic organic chemistry and cell biology, Schreiber and co-workers co-discovered the mammalian protein FRAP, the target of the complex between FKBP12 and rapamycin, and unraveled its role as a metabolic sensor and a regulator of cell's response to nutrients. FRAP and its yeast orthologs Tor1p/2p are now recognized as the founding members of a family of proteins called the PIK-related kinases (ATM, ATR, DNA-PK), which act as intracellular sensors monitoring a number of different cellular pathways.

David Albert Evans was born in Washington D.C. in 1941.
He received his A.B. degree from Oberlin College in 1963. He obtained his Ph.D. at the California Institute of Technology in 1967.In that year he joined the faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles.
In 1973 he was promoted to the rank of Full Professor and shortly thereafter returned to Caltech where he remained until 1983.
In 1983 he joined the Faculty at Harvard University and in 1990 he was appointed as the Abbott and James Lawrence Professor of Chemistry. In July of 1998 he completed his three-year term as chair of the Harvard Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.
Professor Evans is a recipient of numerous honors such as the ACS Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry (1982), and the Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award (1988), the Yamada Prize (1997), the Tetrahedron Prize (1998), the Robert Robinson Award (1998), the Prelog Medal (1999), and the Arthur C. Cope Award (2000).
He was elected into the National Academy of Sciences in 1984, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1988 and the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2001.
He is currently a consultant with Merck Research Laboratories and with Oxford Asymmetry. He has been on the Advisory Boards of The Journal of the American Chemical Society, Tetrahedron, Tetrahedron Letters, and Topics in Stereochemistry. Currently, he is on the Advisory Boards of Organic Letters and Current Opinion in Bio-organic Chemistry, London, UK
Evans has made fundamental advances in the design of stereoselective reactions and the applications of these reactions to natural products synthesis.
In the area of synthesis design, Evans was the first to achieve the de novo synthesis of complex natural products through the exclusive use of chiral auxiliaries to control stereochemical relationships. This represented a dramatic departure from the more prevalent reliance on the "chiral pool" for the origins of absolute stereocontrol within the target structure. Evans' chiral auxiliaries and chiral catalysts for enantioselective bond constructions are widely used in both industrial and academic laboratories throughout the world.
