Call for Applications: Young Scientists Can Receive a Scholarship for Outstanding Contributions to Chemoinformatics

15.02.2010
The German/American award honors junior scientists who deliver outstanding contributions to chemical information and related sciences / Abstracts should be submitted through the new abstract submission system of ACS, PACS, before March 28, 2010 / The winners will be rewarded at the 240th ACS National Meeting in Boston, MA, August 22 - 26, 2010.

Graduate and postdoctoral students are invited to apply for the "2010 FIZ CHEMIE-CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence" until March 28, 2010. The scholarship program of the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) funded by FIZ CHEMIE honors innovative ideas of the next generation of international researchers.

It is given to young scientists who make considerable contributions to the field of chemical information thus advancing computer-aided preparation and the use of chemical knowledge. The award is also designed to foster students' involvement in CINF.

Up to three Scholarships valued at $1,000 each will be awarded at the 240th ACS National Meeting in Boston, MA, August 22 - 26, 2010. Applicants must be enrolled at a certified college or university. They have to present a poster during the Welcoming Reception of the division on Sunday evening at the National Meeting. Additionally, they can show their poster at the Sci-Mix session on Monday night. Winners will be announced during the reception. Winning posters will be marked "Winner of FIZ CHEMIE-CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence".

Abstracts for the poster to apply for the "FIZ CHEMIE-CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence" must be submitted electronically through PACS, the new abstract submission system of ACS, before March 28, 2010. (http://abstracts.acs.org). Along with the submission the Chair of the selection committee, Guenter Grethe has to be informed about the application at ggrethe@comcast.net. Additionally, a 2,000-word abstract describing the work to be presented must be sent in electronic form to Guenter Grethe by June 15, 2010. Any questions related to the application should also be directed to his e-mail address.

All entries will be judged by the following criteria: contents, presentation and relevance of the posters. The contents shall reflect upon the student's work and describe research in the field of cheminformatics and related sciences.

All statements in this press release which are not of a historical character refer to the future in the sense of U.S. security law. The predictive statements are assumptions which are based on the current state of information and consequently are subject to particular uncertainty factors. Events which actually occur can deviate considerably from those predicted due to many factors, for example as a result of changes in technology, product development or production, market acceptance, costs or prices for products of FIZ CHEMIE and dependence on alliances and partners, approval processes, competition, intellectual property or patent protection and copyrights.

Im Focus: Quantenkryptographie ist bereit für das Netz

Wiener Quantenforscher der ÖAW realisierten in Zusammenarbeit mit dem AIT erstmals ein quantenphysikalisch verschlüsseltes Netzwerk zwischen vier aktiven Teilnehmern. Diesen wissenschaftlichen Durchbruch würdigt das Fachjournal „Nature“ nun mit einer Cover-Story.

Im Focus: Tödliche Kombination: Medikamenten-Cocktail dreht Krebszellen den Saft ab

Zusammen mit einem Blutdrucksenker hemmt ein häufig verwendetes Diabetes-Medikament gezielt das Krebswachstum – dies haben Forschende am Biozentrum der Universität Basel vor zwei Jahren entdeckt. In einer Folgestudie, die kürzlich in «Cell Reports» veröffentlicht wurde, berichten die Wissenschaftler nun, dass dieser Medikamenten-Cocktail die Energieversorgung von Krebszellen kappt und sie dadurch abtötet.

Das oft verschriebene Diabetes-Medikament Metformin senkt nicht nur den Blutzuckerspiegel, sondern hat auch eine krebshemmende Wirkung. Jedoch ist die gängige...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Neuartige Lasertechnik für chemische Sensoren in Mikrochip-Größe

Von „Frequenzkämmen“ spricht man bei speziellem Laserlicht, das sich optimal für chemische Sensoren eignet. Eine revolutionäre Technik der TU Wien erzeugt dieses Licht nun viel einfacher und robuster als bisher.

Ein gewöhnlicher Laser hat genau eine Farbe. Alle Photonen, die er abstrahlt, haben genau dieselbe Wellenlänge. Es gibt allerdings auch Laser, deren Licht...
