Stevens' Dr. A. K. Ganguly receives Topliss Award Lecture from University of Michigan
Date:3/2/2011

Dr. A. K. Ganguly, Distinguished Research Professor of Chemistry at Stevens Institute of Technology, recently gave the Topliss Award Lecture at the University of Michigan. Named in honor of pioneer pharmaceutical researcher Dr. John G. Topliss, the lectures were established to recognize outstanding lifetime achievements in medicinal chemistry by academic and industrial scientists. Dr. Ganguly's lecture, "Drug Discovery Lessons Learned," was delivered in Ann Arbor on February 17.

"This recognition is a testament to Professor Ganguly's international reputation among pharmaceutical chemists," says Dr. Philip Leopold, Director of the Department of Chemistry, Chemical Biology and Biomedical Engineering. "He contributes greatly to the high quality of research towards discovery of biologically active molecules at Stevens."

Dr. Ganguly joined Stevens in 1999, after more than thirty years of pharmaceutical industry research. He received his Ph.D. from Imperial College, London, and continued to work with his advisor, Sir Derek Barton, at the Research Institute of Medicine and Chemistry in Cambridge, Massachusetts. At Schering-Plough Research Institute, which he joined in 1968 as a Senior Scientist, Dr. Ganguly rose to the position of Senior Vice President of Chemical Research. He has served on the scientific boards of pharmaceutical companies and consulted with biotechnology companies internationally.

Many of his significant contributions are in drug discovery. He is associated with the discovery of Ezetimibe (Zetia), a cholesterol absorption inhibitor, Noxafil (Posaconazole), a potent antifungal, Boceprevir a potent antiviral agent that inhibits HCY protease and Lonafarnib (Sarasar), a highly selective farnesyl protein transferase inhibitor for the treatment of cancer. He is also recognized for his contributions towards synthesis of many other biologically active molecules and determining structures of several antibiotics which advanced to cl
