Call for Nominations: 2018 IUPAC–Richter Prize

Call for Nominations: 2018 IUPAC–Richter PrizeThe 2018 IUPAC–Richter Prize will be presented at the 36th National Medicinal Chemistry Symposium (ACS-MEDI NMCS: April 29th to May 2nd, 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee, USA) as well as the XXV International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC: September 2nd–6th, 2018 in Ljubljana, Slovenia), where the recipient will also give plenary lectures on the subject of his or her research.

The prize, accompanied by US$10,000, is to be awarded to an internationally recognized scientist, preferably a medicinal chemist, whose activities have made an outstanding contribution to the field of medicinal chemistry.

See the IUPAC website for detailed information, along with an electronic nomination form. The submission deadline for awardee nominations is December 15th, 2017. We hope to see you at these conferences next year!

    Teaming up: Because of the potential for initiating active transport of substrates containing a peroxide pharmacophore by way of a putative cholesterol transporter, a series of artemisinin–cholesterol conjugates were prepared. Although they are less active than the parent artemisinin against P. falciparum, they were found to be appreciably more active against M. tuberculosis in vitro. Poor solubility appears to limit activity of the conjugates.
