Klaus Grohe Prize

GDCh  The Klaus Grohe Foundation, 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€ will be awarded every two years from 2022.

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 XXVII EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry, 4–8 September 2022 in Nice, France. After the award ceremony, the prize winner will be invited to give a lecture on his or her scientific work.

Deadline for nominations: January 31, 2022.
