Personal Fact of Stanford Moore

Stanford Moore was an American biochemist who was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1972 along with two other American biochemists, William Howard Stein and Christian B. Anfinsen for his contribution in the research work at Rockefeller University regarding the structure of ribonuclease, a type of nuclease, and also for comprehending association of the ribonucleasemolecule’s chemical structure with that of its catalytic activity.

Moore and Stein collaborated to discover new techniques of chromatography, a method of separating a mixture, for applying to analyse amino acids and small peptides procured through protein hydrolysis. The first automatic amino-acid analyzer that highly facilitated the study of amino acid sequences of proteins was developed by the duo. The first analysis of the complete chemical structure of the enzyme ribonuclease was made by them using the new device.

Moore spent most of his professional career at the Rockefeller University except a stint with the US government during the Second World War. In 1954 the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Brussels conferred upon him Docteurhonoriscausa. He received several awards along with fellow biochemist William H. Stein which include the American Chemical Society Award in Chromatography and Electrophoresis in 1964; the Linderstrom-Lang Medal from the Carlsberg Research Center  in 1972; and the Richards Medal of the American Chemical Society in 1972.
