2010 Spring CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence

At the 239th ACS National Meeting in San Francisco, March 21-25, 2010, the Division of Chemical Information (CINF) announced the winners of the CINF-Symyx Scholarship for Scientific Excellence. Two scholarships valued at $1,000 each were awarded at the CINF divisional luncheon by Carmen Nitsche of Symyx to Bin Chen of Indiana University and Steven Smith of the University of Cambridge. The scholarship recipients presented posters of their work at the CINF reception on Sunday evening.

The titles of their presentations were "Chem2Bio2RDF: Semantic System Chemical Biology" (Chen) and "Assigning Stereochemistry Using GIAO NMR Shift Calculation" (Smith).

The international scholarship program of CINF is designed to reward graduate and post-graduate students in chemical information and related sciences for scientific excellence and to foster their involvement in CINF. The scholarship program was initiated in 2005 and the awards funded by different organizations are given out at each ACS National Meeting. Scholarship winners receive a year’s complimentary membership in CINF.
