Reporting Avenues for Concerns Related to Integrity or Fairness

The F04A panel reviews fellowship applications dealing with the chemistry of small molecules or peptides, chemical transformation and development of metabolic inhibitors. This includes the synthesis and biosynthesis as well as SAR studies of novel or natural products that have potential for treatment of disease.

The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether standing members or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.

Review Dates


  • Organic and Inorganic chemistry: chemical synthesis and biosynthesis, including reaction development, mechanisms, and kinetics, organometallic chemistry.
  • Computational, medicinal, natural products and metabolic chemistry.
  • Chemical biology: Design and synthesis of bioactive small molecules to probe biological systems, including enzyme inhibitors.
  • Carbohydrate chemistry: The synthesis of sugars and oligosaccharides for studying biological processes.
  • Structure-function relationships of nucleic acids, proteins, glycoproteins, and lipid bilayers
  • Peptide and protein chemistry: Chemical synthesis or engineering of natural and unnatural peptides/proteins.
  • Computational methods of ligand screening in drug development and protein-protein docking.
