Posted on: May 7, 2019

Distinguished Professor Emeritus Laurence Nafie is this year’s winner of the Chirality Medal from the Italian Chemical Society. Named for the geometric property of select molecules and ions, the Chirality recognizes Nafie’s contributions to vibrational optical activity, a tool used to study molecular structures and interactions. Nafie also is the newly appointed board chair of BrightSpec, a privately held life-science instrumentation company.
