In celebration of the 30+ year history of the Prize and its global reach, we are pleased to unveil our new identity and name: the Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis.
This prestigious recognition was established in 1986 by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, members of the academic chemistry community and the Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium (BOSS) to bring attention to the positive impact of organic synthesis in drug discovery.
The nomination period for the 2020 Janssen Prize for Creativity in Organic Synthesis is closed.
Nominations are currently being reviewed by members of the Jury, and the Janssen Prize will be announced at the 2020 BOSS XVII Symposium (July 5 – 10, 2020).
