Congratulations to Andrew Cairns, who has been named a finalist in this year’s Reaxys PhD Prize competition. The Reaxys PhD Prize is the only international chemistry Prize for young researchers, and it aims at once to promote innovative research and to build a network of future leading chemists. The Prize is open to those currently studying for a PhD in Chemistry.
In 2013 the Reaxys PhD prize attracted a record number of submissions from excellent young chemists around the world. As the organisers themselves point out — the quantity and quality of these submissions demonstrates the prestige of the prize and its importance to the chemistry community as a whole (over 580 submissions were received representing more than 400 of the world’s leading chemistry schools).
Andrew is one of just 45 international finalists throughout the fields of organic, organometallic, and inorganic chemistry. He has been asked to present his research at the Reaxys PhD Prize Symposium, which will take place at the 2013 Reaxys Inspiring Chemistry Conference to be held in Grindelwald, Switzerland in September this year.
Fantastic work, Andrew!
