The prize is sponsored by Gedeon Richter PLC and awards USD10,000 to anyone who has contributed exceptionally to medicinal chemistry and/or drug discovery. We encourage you to submit nominations until 15 DECEMBER 2023.


The 2024 IUPAC-Richter Prize will be presented during the XXVIII EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (1-5 September 2024) in Rome (Italy) and the recipient will also give a lecture at the 38th ACS National Medicinal Chemistry Symposium (23-26 June 2024) in Seatle (USA).

Applications are by nomination, with only one person needing to serve in that capacity, although a total of five individuals should additionally be listed as references. The nomination package must be submitted via this form and should contain:

    * a professional biography of not more than two pages, and
    * a one-page summary of what the individual considers to be their activities, accomplishments and/or publications that have had the most significant impact upon the field of Medicinal Chemistry.

The material will be forwarded confidentially to an independent selection committee appointed by the IUPAC Subcommittee on Drug Discovery and Development.
