The Biopolymers Murray Goodman Memorial Prize was established in 2007 in honour of the Founding Editor, Professor Murray Goodman. This international award is presented for outstanding accomplishments in one or more of the areas of biochemistry, biophysical chemistry, biophysics, or chemical biology.
The Prize consists of a symposium in association with the Division of Biological Chemistry (BIOL) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) at the ACS Spring meeting the year following the award, a dinner in recognition of the recipient at the meeting, and travel expenses of up to US$1,000 to the meeting; along with an invitation to write a Review for Biopolymers and US$5,000.
Nominations for the 2018 award should contain a statement of 1,000 words or fewer written by the nominator, detailing the research accomplishments of the nominee and explaining why their research deserves recognition, as well as an up-to-date version of the nominee’s current C.V. Two letters of support should also be provided, including one from the primary nominator. Please send all nominations to the Editor-in-Chief of Biopolymers, Dr Hilary J. Crichton, firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than the 13th August 2018.
Previous Prizes have recognised scientists exploring the fundamental behaviour as well as applications of biopolymers; winners include Steven G. Boxer, William F. DeGrado, Jennifer A. Doudna, Laura L. Kiessling and Joan A. Steitz.
