Division VII Emeritus Fellows

The Division of Chemistry and Human Health awards the status of Emeritus Fellow to former members of the Division and its erstwhile Commissions and Subcommittees who have made outstanding contributions to IUPAC and, through chemistry, to the health sciences in general.

Up to three new Emeritus Fellows are appointed during each Biennium, reflecting the current Subcommittee structure of the Division. Fellows are kept abreast of Division activities and are encouraged to remain active with the Division as ad hoc consultants.
