Reaxys Prize Club

Your network. Your opportunity. Your Club.

Imagine a group of people engaged in discussions that will define the future of chemistry. What would be your contribution? Do you remember the excitement of mentoring young scientists teeming with potential and innovative ideas? How would you encourage their development? Envision connecting with like-minded peers whose work complements your research, who can help you transform ideas into solutions. Who would you like in your network?

The Reaxys Prize Club is the forum where these scenarios crystallize. Every year since 2010, 45 new members from PhD programs at academic institutions around the world are selected to join this elite group of influential scientists. Having demonstrated that their research is original, rigorous and cutting-edge, the members of the Reaxys Prize Club are the brightest young minds in chemistry today, and the leaders of tomorrow. Over the years, their careers have developed, and now Club membership encompasses all chemistry fields of research and the full span of academic and industry positions. The close and stimulating exchange between members of this group serves as momentum for Reaxys Inspiring Chemistry and prompts the insights that lead to new developments.

Membership in the Reaxys Prize Club means the right opportunities to propel your career.

Heightened Profile and Recognition
Given the strict selection criteria of the Reaxys PhD Prize, invitation to join the Reaxys Prize Club attests to the research quality and impact of members. Profiles on the Reaxys Prize Club website and presentations at Reaxys Inspiring Chemistry Symposium showcase your work and propel your career.

Networking for Success
Contact to Prize Club senior members and invited advisors is an exclusive opportunity to find the colleagues and mentors that can help maximize the impact of your ideas. Membership grants you access to private online groups and time to engage in person at the Reaxys Inspiring Chemistry Symposium. And with travel grants, you can build those contacts anywhere.

Information at your Fingertips
Scientific advances of today build on insights from the past. Access to comprehensive information about these insights is priceless and part of your membership benefits. Not only do you enjoy personal and unlimited access to Reaxys and Reaxys Medicinal Chemistry, you can help steer the evolution of these research solutions. Discounts on Elsevier Chemistry books and scientific conferences complete the package.

The Wisdom of Experience – For Senior Members!
