Tetrahedron Young Investigator Award

The Tetrahedron Young Investigator Awards were created in 2005 by the Executive Board of Editors and the Publisher of Tetrahedron Publications. These two new awards will be presented to two individuals who have exhibited "exceptional creativity and dedication" in the fields of Organic Synthesis and of Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry respectively.

Archaelogical Science


The winners each receive US $3,000, a certificate, and an invitation to present a plenary lecture during the annual Tetrahedron Symposium. Furthermore, two Symposium-in-Print will be compiled in their honor. As with the Tetrahedron Prize for Creativity in Organic Chemistry, which these awards complement, the awards are made on an annual basis. Each award will have a separate voting committee, with the Editors of Tetrahedron, Tetrahedron Letters, and Tetrahedron: Asymmetry voting on the Organic Synthesis Award, and the Editors of Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry, and Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry Letters, voting on the Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry Award. Members of the voting committees may not be candidates, nor make nominations.
