The WCC Pfizer Emergent Leader Award recognizes up to eight outstanding individuals in the second year and above of their graduate studies or undertaking post-doctoral research. The applicants must perform research in the areas of organic chemistry, synthetic methodology, total synthesis, medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry and chemical biology.

Awardees will present their research at a WCC/Pfizer award symposium during the ACS Spring Meeting.
