Professor Jorgensen said, “Receipt of the 2015 Tetrahedron Prize is a much appreciated, wonderful honor. I express my gratitude to the Executive Board of Editors of Tetrahedron publications for recognizing our work and for being a steadfast pillar in the organic chemistry community. I have known many of the past recipients and their achievements. To be included in the list is both thrilling and humbling. Of course, the award also recognizes the great talents and efforts of my many dedicated co-workers. It has been a magical voyage in which our fundamental research on modeling organic chemistry in solution evolved into powerful methodology for the discovery of potent enzyme inhibitors.”
