Tetrahedron Prize for Creativity in Organic Chemistry or Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry
TETRAHEDRON PRIZE 2012 AWARDED
TETRAHEDRON PRIZE 2012 FOR CREATIVITY IN ORGANIC CHEMISTRY OR BIOORGANIC & MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY AWARDED TO PROFESSOR PAUL A. WENDER
The Executive Board of Editors and Elsevier, the Publisher of Tetrahedron Publications, are delighted to announce that the Tetrahedron Prize for Creativity in Organic Chemistry for 2012 has been awarded to Professor Paul A. Wender, Stanford University, USA.
The Tetrahedron Prize for 2012 honours one of the most creative synthetic organic chemists of our time. Professor Wender has made many highly significant original contributions to synthetic and bioorganic chemistry, ranging from the discovery and development of new reactions, through total syntheses of many key natural product target molecules, to the design of new agents for treating major human diseases.
The Tetrahedron Prize will be presented to Professor Wender at the Fall 2013 ACS National Meeting in Indianapolis, USA. The date for the Prize Symposium and presentation of the Award is yet to be decided.

ABOUT THE TETRAHEDRON PRIZE
The Tetrahedron Prize is awarded on an annual basis for creativity in Organic Chemistry or Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry. The prize consists of a gold medal, a certificate, and a monetary award of US $10,000. It is awarded to an Organic or Medicinal Chemist who has made significant original contributions to the field, in its broadest sense. On some occasions, the Prize may be awarded jointly to two winners in which case two medals are presented. The winner is expected to write an appropriate article for Tetrahedron or Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry as part of a Symposium-in-Print compiled in their honour.
