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.

Please be informed that following new EFMC regulations, only the members of an EFMC National Adhering Organisation will be allowed to apply for the EFMC grants.


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.

The third EFMC-Roche studentships were confered in Rehovot (Israel) on the occasion of the 6th International Symposium on Advances in Medicinal Chemistry, held on November 15-18, 2015. Robert Gillespie (University of York, United Kingdom) and Patrick Williamson (University of St Andrews, United Kingdom) 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
