Harry B. Gray to Receive Othmer Gold Medal at Heritage Day 2013
Date:2/8/2013

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Harry B. Gray, the Arnold O. Beckman Professor of Chemistry and the founding director of the Beckman Institute at the California Institute of Technology, will receive the 2013 Othmer Gold Medal at the Chemical Heritage Foundation on April 4. The Othmer Gold Medal presentation will be the premier event of CHF's 12th annual Heritage Day.

" Harry Gray is not just a much-heralded pioneer in bioinorganic chemistry," said Thomas R. Tritton , president and CEO of CHF. "In his sixth decade as a research leader with a global reputation, he is forming a Solar Army with no less ambition than reversing centuries of depleting energy from the earth and using the sun to create new and abundant energy to power the planet."

About Harry B. Gray

Gray joined the chemistry faculty at Columbia University in 1961. He rose to full professor in less than five years while developing ligand field theory to interpret the electronic structures and reactions of metal complexes. After moving to Caltech in 1966 he began work in biological inorganic chemistry and photochemistry that led to the development of molecular systems for the storage of solar energy, and in 1982 he demonstrated that electrons can tunnel rapidly over long molecular distances through metalloproteins. In the 1990s he and J. R. Winkler developed laser flash-quench methods that opened the way for experimental investigations that have led to a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of electron flow through proteins that function in respiration and photosynthesis.

Gray has published over 800 research papers and 18 books and received numerous awards. He has been a member of the board of directors of the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation since 1994.
