CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
FOR THE WILLIAM H. NICHOLS MEDAL AWARD FOR 2018

The New York Section is accepting nominations for the William H. Nichols Medal Award for the year 2018. This distinguished award, established in 1902 by Dr. William H. Nichols, for the purpose of encouraging original research in chemistry, is the first award authorized by the American Chemical Society. It is presented annually in recognition of an outstanding contribution in the field of chemistry, and consists of a gold medal, a bronze replica and $5000. The medals are presented at the William H. Nichols Meeting that consists of a Distinguished Symposium related to the medalist's field of expertise and a Medal Award dinner.

Investigators who have published a significant and original contribution in any field of chemistry during the five calendar years preceding the presentation meeting are eligible for consideration by the Nichols Medal Jury. Each nomination requires a completed Nomination Form, biographical and professional data, and seconding letters.
