Professor Köhnke’s award recognises his work in investigating how life performs the complex chemical reactions leading to the formation of natural products. He uses biochemistry and structural biology to study and exploit the biosynthesis of these valuable compounds, which could be used to make new molecules. Those molecules could create novel types of diagnostics, smart materials, and therapies, including materials to evade antibiotic resistance and treat cancer more effectively.
