WASHINGTON - Jerome and Isabella Karle revolutionized the field of small molecule structure research by developing methods to determine structures of crystalline substances indispensable to the solutions of problems in numerous scientific disciplines such as chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, mineralogy, material science, pharmaceuticals, drug design, and medicinal chemistry. By the end of their tenure at NRL, the two had accumulated a combined total of 127 years of scientific research. Among many awards received throughout their tenure, including the 1985 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Jerome, the Karles received the Department of the Navy Distinguished Civilian Service Award, the highest honor possible for a civilian employee.
