Aziz Sancar, who will go to Sweden in two weeks to accept the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, was awarded a key to the city of Chapel Hill while being recognized by Chapel Hill Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt and the town council in a ceremony on Nov. 23 at Town Hall.

Sancar, the Sarah Graham Kenan Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, has been a Chapel Hill resident since arriving at UNC as an associate professor in 1982. More about his Nobel Prize and his most recent work is available on the UNC School of Medicine’s website.

At the gathering, Sancar said, “I have lived in Chapel Hill longer than my hometown where I was born, and I consider myself a true Chapel Hillian.”
