Max Perutz Awardees


Eighth ECA Max Perutz Prize to Professor John Helliwell

John Helliwell led the development of the world’s first dedicated protein crystallography beamlines; he pioneered the collection of the first broad-band Laue diffraction patterns for protein and virus crystals using synchrotron radiation; he combined biochemistry, spectroscopy, microscopy, protein crystallography and small-angle scattering to study the crustacyanins. He contributed to some […]
