The Karpay Award in Structural Biology
The Karpay Award in Structural Biology, established in 2010 to honor the memory of Dr. Anne Karpay, recognizes one senior graduate student who is a well-rounded colleague and scientist, who is collaborative and collegial and who has performed exceptional research in the field of structural biology. Dr. Karpay exemplified each characteristic and demonstrated a passion for science, friendship and life in general. The winner then presents a research talk as part of the award ceremony.
