Dr. Meijer has generated more than 40 patents, published over 320 articles, edited 6 books and has been working with three Nobel Prize recipients. In 1985-86, with Edwin Krebs (Nobel Prize award 1992), he extensively characterized the M-phase specific Histone H1 kinase (which turned out to be CDK1/cyclin B).
