The Department of Pharmacology offers its congratulations to Professor Elspeth Garman who has been awarded the Eleventh Max Perutz Prize by the European Crystallographic Association (ECA).
Professor Garman is a member of the Department of Biochemistry but serves on the Strategic Advisory Board for the Department of Pharmacology. She was an adjudicator for this week's Paton Prize for our second year DPhil students.
The Max Perutz Prize is awarded in recognition of Elspeth Garman’s invaluable contribution to the field of macromolecular crystallographic methods by developing tools and methods for improving the quality of diffraction data.
Elspeth Garman’s science has also been much involved in the elucidation of many important biological structures, among others, the structures of neuraminidases linked to pandemic influenza viruses and bacteria.
