Crystallography, protein molecular structure, Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute. In 1985, Dr. Herbert Hauptman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Although he is a mathematician by training who has taken only one chemistry course in his life, he was able to use classical mathematics to resolve a critical problem in chemistry. The structures of thousands of molecules have now been solved by crystallographers using Dr. Hauptman's methods.
