The Division of Medicinal Chemistry Award

The Division of Medicinal Chemistry Award is given in even years, and the presentation and award symposium are held at the National Medicinal Chemistry Symposium. This award is open to any scientist or team of scientists whose research has, directly or indirectly, had a significant effect on medicinal chemistry. Although other types of accomplishments (such as a new research tool or a biological discovery) will not be excluded, emphasis shall be placed on (a) medicinal chemistry, (b) recent contributions, and (c) scientists whose accomplishments have not already been adequately recognized in the form of other honors.
