Dr. W. Todd Wipke, Professor of Chemistry at the
University of California at Santa Cruz, has been
named to receive the 1991 Herman Skolnik Award
of the Division of Chemical Information of the
American Chemical Society (ACS). The award was
established in 1976 at the ACS Centennial Meeting
in New York to recognize outstanding contributions
to and achievements in the theory and practice
of chemical information science, and was
named for its first recipient. The award will be
presented to Dr. Wipke at the 202nd ACS National
Meeting in New York, NY on Tuesday August 27,
1991. A special symposium in Dr. Wipke's honor
will also be held at that time.
Dr. Wipke has been a pioneer in the development
of methods for representing and manipulating
chemical information. His work in computer-assisted
design of organic synthesis showed that
chemists could directly communicate with computers
graphically in the natural language of the
chemist, the structure diagram. He was the first
to focus on the chemist's need for simple interfaces,
smart systems, and system accountability.
His approach became the foundation of several
new systems, which have become the standards
of the industry. Dr. Wipke has also developed
methods for molecular modeling and conformational
analysis, and was instrumental in starting a
new journal in the area of computational chemistry.
This journal was the first that was available
completely in computer-readable form. He cofounded
Molecular Design Limited and was a developer
of MACCS and REACCS, the first commercial
chemical structure retrieval systems that could
be used directly by bench chemists.
