The Philip S. Portoghese Journal of Medicinal Chemistry - 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 and the ACS Division of Medicinal Chemistry, a lectureship named in honor of Phil Portoghese, Editor-in Chief of the Journal 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 up to $1,500.
