Inaugurated in 2007 in honor of the Biopolymers Founding Editor, the Murray Goodman Memorial Prize recognises outstanding accomplishments in one or more of the areas of biochemistry, biophysical chemistry, biophysics or chemical biology.

The award consists of a symposium in association with the Division of Biological Chemistry (BIOL) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) at the ACS Spring meeting the year following the award, a dinner in recognition of the recipient at the meeting, and travel expenses of up to US$1,000 to the meeting; along with an invitation to write a Review for Biopolymers and US$5,000.

Nominations for the prize should contain a statement of 1,000 words or fewer written by the nominator, detailing the research accomplishments of the nominee and explaining why their research deserves recognition, as well as an up-to-date version of the nominee’s current C.V. Two letters of support should also be provided, including one from the primary nominator. Nominations should be sent by e-mail to the Editor-in-Chief, Dr Hilary J. Crichton.

Nominations are currently open for the 2023 award.
