The Pauling Poster Prize was established by the ACA and is supported by member contributions, to honor Linus Pauling. Pauling was one of the pioneers in American structural research and was a very supportive member of the ACA for many years. At each annual meeting the (7) best graduate or undergraduate (no post-docs) poster presentations receive Pauling awards. Some of the awards consist of $250, a complimentary banquet ticket, and a copy of a Linus Pauling book.
Herman R. Branson Pauling Poster Prize: recognizes the contributions of Herman Russell Branson, one of the first African American physicists to make crystallography the focus of his research.
Muttaiya Sundaralingam Pauling Poster Prize: recognizes the ground-breaking crystallographic research on the stereochemistry of nucleotides and nucleic acids done by Muttaiya Sundaralingam and his colleagues.
Louis Delbaere Pauling Poser Prize: sponsored by the Canadian Division of the ACA and the Canadian National Committee of the IUCr, will be given to the highest ranked graduate or undergraduate poster from a Canadian laboratory.
Poster Prize: sponsored by the International Union of
Crystallography, to be given to a poster selected by the committee. The award
