ACS BIOL Advisory Council Survey

We hope that you will help us in crafting the strategic plan by replying to a brief survey.

Call For Nominations: ACS Division of Biological Chemistry Awards

The BIOL leadership has (for many years) been aware of the very severe age restrictions on nominees for the Lilly and Pfizer awards. We are therefore pleased to announce that, after consultation with representatives of both companies, these requirements have been changed to reflect the very different career paths followed in the 21st century. We hope that many early-career investigators who thought they were ineligible will now be able to put together nomination packets for these awards. Please note that all the other nomination requirements remain unchanged from previous years.
