Know an extraordinary young researcher who is inspiring the next generation of chemists? Submit your nomination by January 17 for the Talented 12 class of 2023:
C&EN editorial staff produces the Talented 12 program and it is presented by Thermo Fisher Scientific, which does not influence any editorial decisions.
ABOUT THE TALENTED 12
C&EN's Talented 12 program identifies and celebrates young chemists working in academia, industry, and government, who are just beginning to put their innovative and transformative ideas into practice.
Being recognized can serve as a launching pad for the Talented 12 to gain recognition for their ideas, find funding and collaborators, and become the leaders of the future.
There’s a lot of talent around. Having enough role models out there to pull more people into our field is a good thing.
SUBMIT YOUR NOMINATION BY
When making your nomination, please consider:
AGE: Nominees should be age 42 or younger and taking risks in the early stages of their career. Academic candidates should not yet have attained a permanent professorship (called pre-tenure in the U.S.), and government or industry scientists should be less than a decade out from their postdoctoral position. Extraordinary grad students and postdocs will be considered.
DIVERSITY: We seek a diverse mix of candidates from all over the world and with different types of backgrounds. Nominees should also come from different types of affiliations (academia/government labs/industry) and scientific disciplines (organic/inorganic/physical chemistry/etc.).
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE TALENTED 12 CLASS OF 2022
The Talented 12 class of 2022 is a group of path-paving young scientists tackling the world's toughest problems with clever chemistry. Each year, it gets harder to narrow the vast pool of nominees down to just 12. Whether they're finding ways to remove pollutants from water or rewriting the rules of small molecule drug discovery, these rising stars are fearlessly taking on some of the world's most daunting problems.
BRINGING CHEMISTRY TO LIFE
At Thermo Fisher Scientific, we bring chemistry to life by making the chemicals and reagents that are the foundation of any scientific discovery. And by delivering the most advanced analytical instrumentation necessary for today's scientists to accelerate sample to knowledge, we're proud to know that Thermo Fisher Scientific is a valued partner across every step of the scientific process.
That's why we are honored to sponsor C&EN's Talented 12 program, which fosters innovation, inspiring the next generation of scientific talent and celebrating the young visionaries whose chemistry is making an impact on the world.
