Werner Kaminsky, Ph.D.,,  Dept. of Chemistry, UW
Researchers recently pinned down the exact structure and arrangement of compounds that flavor one of the world’s oldest beverages: beer. Join UW’s Werner Kaminsky, Ph.D., to discover how he used X-rays to create a more accurate understanding of the structures of humulones, key compounds in hops (an essential ingredient in beer). How might this new knowledge also impact medicines and our health? Download the PDF flyer.
