The Klaus Grohe Foundation, which is administered by the GDCh (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker/German Chemical Society), has established the Klaus Grohe Prize, one of the most highly endowed prizes for medicinal chemistry in Europe. The prize, which has a value of € 50,000 is awarded every two years since 2020.
The prize is conferred on an individual working in Europe who has demonstrated creativity and excellence in developing novel principles of medicinal chemistry or drug discovery and whose research results plot a clear route towards future applications. The award winner should be under the age of 45 with a promising independent scientific career and should already enjoy international recognition for his or her outstanding achievements in the field.
The award will be conferred during the International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry of the European Federation of Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC), 1-5 September 2024 in Rome, Italy. After the award ceremony, the prize winner will be invited to give a lecture on his or her scientific work.
Nominations for the award should be supported by a letter of endorsement, a curriculum vitae and a list of publications. Please note that self-nominations are not allowed.
Please submit your nomination by 31 January 2024 via the online form at gdch.de/nominations
