The American Chemical Society is inviting nominations for its Robert M. Scarborough Graduate/Postgraduate Award for Excellence in Medicinal Chemistry.
Awarded through the ACS Division of Medicinal Chemistry, the annual award is intended to recognize two current graduate students and/or postdoctoral researchers who have had a primary, leading role in significant scientific discoveries that enhance the field of medicinal chemistry. The awardees will present an award address at the fall national meeting of the American Chemical Society as a part of Division of Medicinal Chemistry programming, receive a commemorative plaque and honorarium, and receive $500 to partially offset travel expenses to attend the meeting.
To be eligible, candidates must be a current graduate student or postdoctoral researcher at an academic institution, private, or government research foundation and must have demonstrated a key role in and contribution to a research project with direct medicinal chemistry applications and relevance. Nominees are expected to have demonstrated creativity and insight in medicinal chemistry and/or biology and possess pragmatic, empirical problem solving skills.
