Awards and Prizes

Eleanor Dodson wins 1998 Fankuchen Prize

The Fankuchen Memorial Award recognizes crystallographers for both research and effective teaching of crystallography. E.J. Dodson of the U. of York, England, was cited for developing and implementing major computational techniques for macromolecular crystallography and for teaching countless students how to use the resultant programs. Her name is closely linked with the Collaborative Computing Project 4 (CCP4) suite of programs for macromolecular crystallography, which has been used in labs around the world for two decades. She lectures at countless schools and workshops, and has assisted untold numbers of protein crystallographers with remarkable diligence, patience, and humanitarian concern.
