The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) is an independent association representing medicinal chemistry societies in Europe. Its objective is to advance the science of medicinal chemistry by promoting cooperation and networking, by providing training and mentoring, by rewarding scientific excellence, and by facilitating communication and influencing stakeholders.

ESMEC

In addition to the EFMC grants, EFMC and the Scientific Committee of ESMEC are offering 13 (10+3) scholarships for the participation to the XXXIV edition of the school, scheduled from June 28 to July 3, 2015.

The scholarships, covering the registration fee and the full board accommodation, will be assigned to PhD students enrolled in Doctoral Schools held in one of the member countries of EFMC, excluding Italy. A Committee formed by Prof. Carlo De Micheli, the Director of ESMEC-Urbino, Prof. Koen Augustyns, President of EFMC, and Prof. Antonello Mai, member of the School’s Scientific Committee, will carry out the selection on the basis of the candidate scientific CV.

Applicants are invited to fill in the enclosed form and to send it along with the CV, a motivation letter and the abstract of the research project, preferably by e-mail, stating in the subject box "ESMEC Application" within March 21st, 2015 to:

Prof. Carlo De Micheli

EFMC Roche Studentships

One of the goals of the EFMC is to enhance interactions at the industry/academia interface and to promote improved cooperation between the pharmaceutical industry and academia. EFMC therefore proposed an opportunity to broaden the awareness to European University based chemistry students of the EFMC activities by rewarding excellence accomplished during a medicinal chemistry internship in industry.

The first EFMC-Roche studentships have been announced at the EFMC ISMC Symposium held in Berlin on September 2012 by Ulrich Stilz (EFMC President) and Torsten Hoffmann (Roche). The recipients were Nicole Trainor (Imperial College, UK) and Claudio Grünenfelder (ETH Zürich, Switzerland). 

The second EFMC-Roche studentships were conferred in Lisbon on occassion of the EFMC-ISMC Symposium, held on September 7-11, 2014. Corentine Laurin (University of Glasgow, UK) and Johannes Lehmann (TU München, Germany) were the recipients.

EFMC hopes that other companies supporting medicinal chemistry internship students can recognise excellence in this way. If you are interested in more information please contact
