AMSTERDAM, July 8, 2020 — Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, has announced the 45 finalists for the 2020 Reaxys Ph.D. Prize.

Launched in 2010, the Reaxys Ph.D. Prize celebrates innovative and rigorous research by ambitious early-career chemical sciences researchers. This year’s competition maintained the high standards of previous years: over 400 entries from around the globe were rigorously examined by the Review Committee to arrive at the 45 finalists.

“This year continues the tradition of excellence of the Reaxys Prize in attracting hundreds of outstanding applications from all across the globe,” said Reaxys Advisory Board member Professor Donna Huryn, a Principal Investigator at the University of Pittsburgh Chemical Diversity Center. “Equally impressive are the 45 finalists, and they represent the breadth of our field in terms of geography and discipline. I am looking forward to what will be an exceptional symposium.”

The 45 finalists would attend the virtual Reaxys Ph.D. Prize Symposium from September 30 to October 2, 2020. While usually an in-person event, this year’s celebratory gathering will be online to ensure that all finalists can attend—regardless of any travel restrictions that may be in place in their home countries. A pre-registration link is available on the symposium page for anyone interested in joining the online event. The event will feature talks, including a keynote presentation from the renowned University of California chemist Professor Bruce Lipshutz and a virtual poster session. The organizers also have specific plans to support networking.

Fellow Advisory Board member Professor Zhaomin Hou, Chief Scientist and Director of the Organometallic Chemistry Laboratory at the RIKEN Research Institute in Japan, added that he was profoundly impressed by the number of high-quality submissions in 2020. “The Ph.D. prize brings together young and enthusiastic scientists to showcase their newest discoveries and test new scientific ideas in open discussions.”

During the virtual symposium, the ten shortlisted finalists will give oral presentations of their research, from which the Reaxys Advisory Board will select the three winners of the Reaxys Ph.D. Prize 2020.

“Innovative young researchers from all over the world entered, and we plan to celebrate their achievements as we do each year,” said Dr. Friedrich Kroll, Elsevier’s Senior Manager of Scientific Affairs and co-organizer of the competition. “We are delighted to see the contest continue to draw this number and quality of submissions.

“The opportunity to establish networks to address current scientific challenges, particularly ones requiring interdisciplinary solutions, is an important aspect of the event. We’re also inviting our largest ever audience, with attendees from all previous years,” Dr. Kroll added.

All finalists will receive lifelong membership in the Reaxys Prize Club, an exclusive international network of chemists from all research areas and career paths. Members also receive unlimited access to Elsevier’s research solutions Reaxys and Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry.

This year’s finalists and their Ph.D. institutions are:
