Awards and Prizes

PDB announces new poster prize

The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is pleased to announce the establishment of the PDB Poster Prize. Beginning this summer, a prize will be awarded for the best student poster involving macromolecular crystallography at each of the meetings of the IUCr Regional Associates (ACA, ECM and AsCA) as well as at the IUCr Congress itself. This year’s prizes will consist of two signed texts – Biochemistry - Vol I by Donald and Judith G. Voet and Introduction to Macromolecular Crystallography by Alexander McPherson. Details on how undergraduates and graduate students can 'label' their posters for review will be made available at the PDB website ( and at the registration desk for all three meetings.
