EFMC is conferring every two years three Awards in order to acknowledge outstanding achievements in the field of Medicinal Chemistry. The 2018 Awards will be conferred on the occasion of the XXV EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
All 3 awards consist of a diploma, € 7.500 and an invitation for a lecture by the Award recipient at the EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry.
Nominations for these Awards consist of a nomination letter, a brief CV, including a list of selected publications and two supporting letters. Self-nominations are also accepted. The nominations should be submitted to Prof. Koen Augustyns, President of the EFMC, via the EFMC website.
The "EFMC Prize for a Young Medicinal Chemist in Academia” and the "EFMC Prize for a Young Medicinal Chemist in Industry" were established by the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry to acknowledge and recognise an outstanding young medicinal chemist (≤ 12 years after PhD) working in academia or industry within Europe.
The Prize is given annually and consists of a diploma, € 1.000 and an invitation for a short presentation at an EFMC Symposium. The 2018 Prize winners will be invited to hold a short presentation at the EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry in Ljubljana. Two nominees will also be identified and acknowledged.
IUPAC and Gedeon Richter, Plc. are pleased to announce the 2018 IUPAC-Richter Prize in Medicinal Chemistry. The Prize has been established by a generous gift from the Chemical Works of Gedeon Richter, Plc. (Budapest, Hungary) to acknowledge the key role that medicinal chemistry plays toward improving human health. The prize (USD 10.000) is to be awarded to an internationally recognised scientist, preferably a medicinal chemist, whose activities or published accounts have made an outstanding contribution to the practice of medicinal chemistry or to an outstanding example of new drug discovery.
The 2018 IUPAC-Richter Prize will be presented during the EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry in Ljubljana, where the recipient will also give a plenary lecture on the subject of his/her research. The travel expenses of the prize winner will be arranged by Gedeon Richter, Plc.
The Call for Nominations is now open, and submissions should be done via this link.
