His field of study.

Biochemistry is the study of chemicals and how they relate to living organisms. They control information flow by biochemical signaling through metabolism. This field of study is so successful, many other fields are also involved in biochemistry too. The study of biochemistry has explained almost every living function. The main focus of biochemistry is to now study cell processes.


Bruce has earned the following awards:

-National Medal of Science. (2014)

-Centennial Medal. (Harvard University, 2014)

-Vannevar Bush Award.(2010)


A passion Bruce has been in promoting the teaching of science in elementary schools. He contributed to the development of Nation Science Education. He also issued Teaching About Evolution and the Nature of Science.
