- The award, established in 2000, is named after the late honorary
chair of the Society and the pioneer of the interdisciplinary science of
QSAR, Dr. Corwin Hansch.
The winner is selected from a poll of
nominees, which need to have the following qualifications. A person under the age of 40 years, who is active in the field of Quantitative Structure-Activity
Relationships, and who has contributed significantly to the field. QSAR is defined broadly, in the same sense that we include papers and
posters at the European Symposium on QSAR and the Gordon Research on QSAR. Hence, those who deal with
cheminformatics, drug design, physical properties, topological indices, molecular models, docking, protein folding,
3D-QSAR, combinatorial library design, similarity analyses, multivariate statistical analyses, and related topics are eligible. In short, any
quantitative connection between biological or physical properties and chemical structure that requires computational techniques is
- The Awards are presented at the European QSAR Symposia and the
Gordon Research Conferences on Computer-Aided Drug Design.
