演讲人简介
Brian M. Stoltz was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA in 1970.  After spending a year at the Ludwig Maximilians Universität in München, Germany, he obtained his BS in Chemistry and BA in German from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1993.  He then earned his Ph. D. in 1997 under the direction of Professor John L. Wood at Yale University specializing in synthetic organic chemistry.  Following an NIH postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratories of Professor E. J. Corey at Harvard University (1998-2000), he joined the faculty at Caltech in 2000 where he is currently Professor of Chemistry.  His research focuses on the design and implementation of new synthetic strategies for the synthesis of complex molecules possessing important biological properties, in addition to the development of new synthetic methods including asymmetric catalysis and cascade processes.  


In addition to awards from a number of pharmaceutical companies (i.e., Abbott, Amgen, AstraZeneka, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson and Johnson, Merck, Novartis, Pfizer, Roche), Professor Stoltz is the recipient of the Camille and Henry Dreyfus New Faculty and Teacher-Scholar Awards, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, the Research Corporation Research Innovation and Cottrell Scholars Awards, an A. P. Sloan Research Fellowship, an Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award from the American Chemical Society, and has received the Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering (PECASE) from the White House.  In 2006, he was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and from 2008–2012 was a KAUST GRP Investigator.  He was named the recipient of the 2009 E. J. Corey award from the American Chemical Society.  Professor Stoltz was recognized by the Caltech Graduate Student Council with both a Classroom Teaching Award and a Mentoring Award in 2001 and by the Associated Students of the California Institute of Technology for their 30th Annual Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2006.  Additionally, he is the recipient of the 2017 Richard P. Feynman Prize for Excellence in Teaching at Caltech, the highest honor for teaching at the institute.  Most recently, Stoltz was awarded the 2009 Raymond and Beverly Sackler Prize in the Physical Sciences for Chemistry related to the Total Synthesis of Biologically Active Natural Products from Tel Aviv University and the Tetrahedron Young Investigator Award in Organic Chemistry for 2010.  Recently, he was named the 2015 recipient of the Mukaiyama Award by the Society of Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Japan for the discovery and development of new reactions and processes for the synthesis of complex natural products and non-naturally occurring bioactive structures.
