Thérèse Wilson, Ph.D.
|1954-2014||Chemistry Department||Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, United States|
Area:Chemiluminescence and Bioluminescence
Born in Brussels to Frédèric and Claire Bremer, she studied at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, where she obtained a doctorate in chemistry in 1952. In 1954, when there were few women in American science — and none on the faculty of the Harvard Chemistry Department — she came to work with George Kistiakowsky, the renowned physical chemist, on a Fulbright grant.
In 1955, she married E. Bright Wilson Jr., the Theodore William Richards Professor of Chemistry.
After taking time off to have three children she resumed her career at Harvard. She went on to make important contributions to the understanding of the chemical and biochemical reactions that produce light, first in the lab of Paul Bartlett of the Chemistry Department and later in the lab of J. Woodland Hastings in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology.
