1971 - Paul Karrer Gold Medal, University of Zurich
1969 - Member of the National Academy of Sciences
Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Enzyme, Organic chemistry and Hydroxylation are his primary areas of study. His work on Histrionicotoxins as part of general Stereochemistry study is frequently linked to Isoleucine, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Biochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Stimulation, Depolarization and Tetrodotoxin.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Tryptophan, Amphetamine, Tyramine and Phenethylamine. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Organic chemistry, concentrating on Metabolism and frequently concerns with Carcinogen, Toxicity, Lysergic acid diethylamide, Biotransformation and Excretion. The Hydroxylation study combines topics in areas such as Proline, Amino acid, Cis–trans isomerism and Normetanephrine.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Organic chemistry, Medicinal chemistry and Enzyme. The concepts of his Stereochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Gramicidin A, Cleavage and Hydroxylation. His study in Biochemistry focuses on Proline and Tryptophan.
Bernhard Witkop focuses on Stereochemistry, Acetylcholine receptor, Acetylcholine, Organic chemistry and Membrane potential. Bernhard Witkop interconnects Optically active and Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor in the investigation of issues within Stereochemistry. His Acetylcholine receptor study also includes fields such as
His Acetylcholine research focuses on Ion channel and how it relates to Electrophysiology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Photochemistry, Chemical synthesis and Biological activity in addition to Organic chemistry. His Biological activity course of study focuses on Molecular biology and Interferon and Structure–activity relationship.
Bernhard Witkop spends much of his time researching Stereochemistry, Acetylcholine, Acetylcholine receptor, Membrane potential and Pharmacology. Bernhard Witkop has included themes like Nicotinic agonist and Cholinergic in his Stereochemistry study. In his research on the topic of Acetylcholine, Biophysics is strongly related with Ion channel.
His research investigates the connection between Acetylcholine receptor and topics such as Agonist that intersect with issues in Myocyte and Muscarinic acetylcholine receptor M4. His Membrane potential research integrates issues from Acetylcholine binding, Affinity chromatography and Dissociation constant. His work deals with themes such as In vitro metabolism, Toxicology and Methylation, which intersect with Pharmacology.
