G. N. Ramachandran awarded the fifth Ewald Prize
it was announced that the fifth Ewald Prize had been awarded to
Professor G.N. Ramachandran for his outstanding contributions to the
field of crystallography: in the area of anomalous scattering and its
use in the solution of the phase problem, in the analysis of the
structure of fibres, collagen in particular, and, foremost, for his
fundamental works on the macromolecular conformation and the validation
of macromolecular structures by means of the 'Ramachandran plot', which
even today remains the most useful validation tool.
The presentation of the Ewald Prize was made during the Glasgow Congress Opening Ceremony in August 1999.
