Milton T. W. Hearn Wins H. G. Smith Memorial Medal

Prof. Milton T. W. Hearn

Prof. Milton T. W. Hearn, Chairman and Titular Member of IUPAC's Commission on Biotechnology (III.4) and Titular Member of IUPAC's Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry Division Committee (III), has won the coveted H. G. Smith Memorial Medal of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) for 1999. Prof. Hearn has served as Professor of Biochemistry, Monash University, Clayton, Victoria, Australia since 1986.

The H. G. Smith Memorial Medal is awarded annually "to the member of RACI who has contributed most to the development of some branch of chemical science". Prof. Hearn was cited for contributing "to the current, advanced state of application of chemical and biophysical principles and strategies that underpin the chromatographic and electrophoretic sciences in biochemical analysis, including advanced procedures and technologies for the separation of peptides, proteins, and polynucleotides of commercial importance in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological industries". His studies on the structure and function of bioactive peptides, protein hormones, and growth factors involved in normal and disease state processes, including biomolecules involved in the regulation of reproductive function and tumorigenesis, have also attracted much international attention.
