About the award
This award, which is sponsored by Dextra Laboratories, was founded in 1970. It is presented to a scientist in the early/mid stage of their career for meritorious work in carbohydrate chemistry that has largely been conducted in the UK.
Administrative responsibility for this award lies with the RSC Carbohydrate Group. Decisions will be made by an independent award selection committee appointed by the RSC Carbohydrate Group Chair. The award selection committee will be drawn from past Chairs of the RSC Carbohydrate Group, past award recipients, and other scientists of international standing in the field.
Nominations for this award, which will be presented every second year, may be submitted to the Group Secretary. The deadline for nominations is usually in January of the award year.
The Awardee will be expected to give a lecture at the Autumn RSC Carbohydrate Group conference.
The award lecture, which is generally delivered at the Group's autumn meeting, may deal with any area of carbohydrate chemistry including analytical, biological, organic, physical or technological aspects.
