2008 IUPAC–Richter Prize in Medicinal Chemistry:
Call for Nominations
The 2008 IUPAC–Richter Prize will be presented in June 2008 during the American Chemistry Society’s 32nd National Medicinal Chemistry Symposium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, where the recipient will also give a plenary lecture on the subject of his or her research. The recipient will also give the lecture at a medicinal chemistry symposium in Europe. Symposia organizers will likely contribute to the recipient’s travel expenses.
The prize of USD 10 000 will be awarded to an internationally recognized scientist, preferably a medicinal chemist, whose activities or publications have made an outstanding contribution to the practice of medicinal chemistry or the discovery of a new drug.
The Prize in Medicinal Chemistry was established by a generous gift from the Chemical Works of Gedeon Richter, Ltd. (Budapest, Hungary) to acknowledge the key role that medicinal chemistry plays in improving human health.
Applicants can be by nomination only, with just one person needing to serve in that capacity, although five individuals should be listed as referees. The application package must be submitted electronically and should contain a complete resume, a professional autobiography of not more than two pages, and a one-page summary of the activities, accomplishments, and/or publications of the applicant that have had the most significant impact on the field of medicinal chemistry. The material will be forwarded confidentially to an independent selection committee appointed by the IUPAC Subcommittee on Medicinal Chemistry and Drug Development.
The application deadline is 31 December 2007. For further information, please contactC. Robin Ganellin at <email@example.com>.
