Finalist of the Reaxys PhD Prize 2020
Mr. Francesco Ibba has been selected as one of the 45 finalists for the Reaxys PhD Prize 2020
Launched in 2010, the Reaxys PhD Prize celebrates innovative and rigorous research by ambitious early career chemical sciences researchers. This year's competition maintained the high standards of previous years: over 400 entries from around the globe were rigorously examined by the Review Committee to arrive at the 45 finalists.
"This year continues the tradition of excellence of the Reaxys Prize in attracting hundreds of outstanding applications from all across the globe," said Reaxys Advisory Board member Professor Donna Huryn, a Principal Investigator at the University of Pittsburgh Chemical Diversity Center. "Equally impressive are the 45 finalists, and that they represent the breadth of our field in terms of geography as well as discipline. I am looking forward to what will be an exceptional symposium."
The 45 finalists are invited to attend the virtual Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium that will be held from September 30 to October 2, 2020. While normally an in-person event, this year's celebratory gathering will be online to ensure that all finalists can attend-regardless of any travel restrictions that may be in place in their home countries. A pre-registration link is available on the symposium page for anyone interested in joining the online event. The event will feature talks, including a keynote presentation from renowned University of California chemist Professor Bruce Lipshutz and a virtual poster session. The organizers also have special plans to support networking.
