The Novartis Early Career Award in Organic Chemistry was created to mark Novartis’ commitment to science and innovation in chemistry. The award is presented annually to outstanding scientists who are active in the areas of organic or bioorganic chemistry in the broadest sense, and is intended to provide support for investigators early in their career. We are now seeking nominations of candidates who began their independent academic career in or after 2001, from all academic institutions. The nominations will be assessed by Novartis senior scientists together with leading external experts in the field. Two winners will be identified, each of whom will receive an unrestricted research grant. Deadline for the submission of nominations, including a letter of recommendation and a curriculum vitae, is April 30, 2011.*
