Professor Elspeth Garman
Elspeth Garman has been awarded the 2016 American Crystallographic Association Fankuchen Award, an award created "to recognize contributions to crystallographic research by one who is known to be an effective teacher of crystallography".
The American Crystallographic Association go on to say that they are honouring "Elspeth's absolute dedication to teaching crystallography in seminars and workshops all over the world, and her great contributions to improve cryo-methods in crystallography".
The Fankuchen Award is given every 3 years, in memory of Dr. I. Fankuchen, Professor of Physics at the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn from 1942 to 1964, and will be presented to Elspeth when she gives a prize lecture at the ACA meeting in Denver on the 26th July 2016.
