Online Learning Platform
The GCIPR has rennovated the educational website, Chem21 Learning Platform, originally developed by a European public-private partnership dedicated to the development of manufacturing sustainable pharmaceuticals. The platform is an excellent resource for medicinal and process chemists who are interested in learning about how to make the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients greener. This site is now live at learning.acsgcipr.org
The GCIPR offers training workshops at ACS National Meetings, universities, member campuses and other locations. Check back frequently for upcoming events.
Roundtable members actively participate in scientific conferences around the world and present on green chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry.
Recognizing excellence in chemistry and processes that provide compelling environmental, safety and efficiency improvements within the pharmaceutical industry and its allied industrial partners, the GCIPR sponsors two awards:
- Peter J. Dunn Award for Green Chemistry & Engineering Impact in the Pharmaceutical Industry
- CMO Excellence in Green Chemistry Award
Student/Post-Doc Travel Awards
GCIPR invites graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to present their research at the Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference session, “Making Organic Chemistry More Sustainable: Special Student Session.” Students selected give a 20-minute oral presentation and receive a $1000 travel reimbursement.
