Launched in 2010, the Reaxys PhD Prize celebrates chemistry PhD students and recent graduates, fostering creativity in ground-breaking chemistry. Besides identifying tomorrow's chemistry leaders, the Prize seeks to empower them to magnify the impact of their work. This starts with the Prize Symposium, where the finalists are provided with an international stage for presenting their research and the opportunity to extend their network with their fellow finalists and internationally recognized chemists.
The 2017 Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium is also the occasion for the Reaxys Advisory Board and Prize coordinators to select the three winners, based on the originality, innovation, relevance and methodological rigor of their presented work. The winners will be announced at the banquet following the Symposium.
The selection of the winners is the last step of a long and rigorous review process. Started in March, the process involved more than 100 international chemists from academia and industry, who, together with Prize Coordinators, are the key to ensure a fair and rigorous selection process.
"As one of the Prize coordinators since 2010, I am very proud to see the continued developed of the Prize. The quality of the submissions is fantastic," said Prof Henry N. C. Wong of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. "I know we will have another difficult but exciting discussion in order to identify this year's winners. I am looking forward to the Symposium in Shanghai and to meeting the finalists in person. Their enthusiasm for their research and for chemistry is one of the most rewarding aspects of the meeting."
This year's 45 finalists are:
