POSTER PRIZESAs of August 8, 2012
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. Each award consists of $250, a complimentary banquet ticket, and a copy of
a Linus Pauling book.

and was very supportive member of the ACA for many years. Up to three prizes awarded annually.
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
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.
Loius 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.
IUCr Pauling Poster Prize: sponsored by the International Union of Crystallography, to be given to
a poster selected by the committee. The award is complimentary online access to all IUCr journals for
one year or a complimentary volume of International Tables or other IUCr publication.
Journal of Chemical Crystallography Prize
The best student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presentation in the area of chemical crystallography or small
molecule structure determination and analysis is sponsored by Springer's Journal of Chemical Crystallography.
The winner will receive their personal choice of books from Springer's extensive portfolio of titles.
RCSB Protein Data Bank Poster Prize
This prize recognizes a student, graduate or undergraduate, poster presentation involving macromolecular
crystallography. The award will be two educational books that will be mailed to the winner after the meeting.
An announcement will appear on the RCSB PDB website and newsletter. For more information, see http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/static.do?p=general_information/about_pdb/poster_prize.html.
CrystEngComm Poster Prize
