Call for Nominations: 2014 Robert M. Scarborough Award for Graduate/Post-Graduate Excellence in Medicinal Chemistry
The Robert M. Scarborough Graduate/Postgraduate Award for Excellence in Medicinal Chemistry is intended to recognize two current graduate student and/or postdoctoral researchers who have had a leading role in significant scientific discoveries in the field of medicinal chemistry. This award is in memory of Robert M. Scarborough, an accomplished medicinal chemist and inventor of drugs such as Natrecor and Integrilin, and is sponsored by Portola Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a cardiovascular company founded by Dr. Scarborough.
The awardees will present their research at the Fall national meeting of the American Chemical Society as a part of Division of Medicinal Chemistry programming, where they will receive a commemorative plaque, and a $500 honorarium.
Awardees will also receive $500 to partially offset travel expenses to attend the meeting.
Candidates must be current graduate students or postdoctoral researchers at an academic institution, private or government research foundation and must have demonstrated a key role in and contribution(s) 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. A publication or presentation record that supports the candidate’s contribution(s) is helpful but not essential.
A completed nomination package includes a three-page research summary that highlights the candidate's contributions, insight and problem solving skills; a short abstract of the presentation that the candidate will make if selected; the candidate’s curriculum vitae; and a letter of recommendation from the nominee's primary research advisor. These documents should be sent electronically as a single PDF file to Dr. Joel Barrish, Past Chair, Division of Medicinal Chemistry (email@example.com) by Saturday, March 15, 2014.
Call for Nominations: Philip S. Portoghese Journal of Medicinal Chemistry/American Chemical Society Division of Medicinal Chemistry Joint Lectureship
To enhance the visibility of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry within the medicinal chemistry community and strengthen ties between the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry and the ACS Division of Medicinal Chemistry, a lectureship named in honor of Phil Portoghese, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry from 1972 to 2011, has been established. The objective of this lectureship is to honor the contributions of an individual who has had a major impact on medicinal chemistry research.
The lectureship will be administered jointly by the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry and the Division of Medicinal Chemistry of the American Chemical Society. The award will be funded principally by the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry (ACS Publications Division) and will consist of an honorarium of $3,000, a suitable plaque, and travel expenses.
Selection of the awardee will be made by a committee consisting of one Associate Editor of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry (chosen by the Editor), one ACS member (chosen by the Chair of the Division of Medicinal Chemistry) and one member of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry Editorial Advisory Board to be chosen jointly by the Editor and the Division. Awardee selection will be made by June 30, and the award address will be given at the fall National ACS meeting during the regularly scheduled award symposium. To further promote the prize and the journal, the winner will be asked to submit a Perspective article for publication in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.
Eligible candidates should meet the above criteria and have published at least one article in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. The Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry and officers of the Division of Medicinal Chemistry are not eligible for the award, nor is any member of the selection committee in the year in which the awardee is chosen. Nominations should include a current curriculum vitae for the candidate, a list of publications, a letter of nomination outlining the special achievements of the candidate, and a minimum of two additional letters of support. All nomination material should be sent electronically to the Secretary of the Division of Medicinal Chemistry, Eric Walters (firstname.lastname@example.org), by Monday, March 31, 2014.
American Chemical Society Division of Medicinal Chemistry Predoctoral Fellowships
The ACS Division of Medicinal Chemistry annually awards a number of Predoctoral Fellowships.
The awards are for predoctoral students in their third or fourth year of graduate study (second or third year of graduate study at the time of application) engaged in medicinal chemistry research in a Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Chemistry department listed in the current ACS Directory of Graduate Research.
Mentors for all applicants must be members in good standing of the Division of Medicinal Chemistry.
The current amount of the award is $26,000.00. The Division annually funds one or more of these awards. In the past, additional awards have been sponsored by companies and through the generosity of members of the Division (Richard Silverman, Robert Vince, Thomas Perun).
Nominations should be submitted by the applicant’s Ph.D. advisor and should include a complete student curriculum vitae, including education and work experience; a student bibliography, including reprints of articles; a complete project description including rationale prepared by the candidate (five-page limit); transcripts of
all post-high school work, including Graduate Record Examination scores (if available); three letters, including a nomination letter from the student's research advisor; and a letter from a university official with a commitment to cover tuition and all fees granted to other regular graduate students.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent resident visa holders at the time of application and must have at least one year of graduate school remaining at the time an award would begin (about September 1 each year).
Additional information (including a complete set of guidelines) can be obtained from the immediate Past Chair of the Division, whose name and contact information can be found on the Division webpage, www.acsmedchem.org.
All application materials for the fellowship are to be submitted electronically to the immediate Past Chair of the Division.
The deadline is March 15 each year.
