At this year's meeting of the American Crystallographic Association, the award went to Miguel Torres for Crystallization and preliminary structural studies of an aldo-keto reductase from opium poppy (Miguel Torres, Mehran Dastmalchi, Peter Facchini, and Kenneth Ng, University of Calgary).

Many thanks to judges Thomas Koetzle, Bruce Noll (Bruker), Przemyslaw Porebski (University of Virginia), and Peter Müller (MIT).

All 2017 awardees will be listed on the RCSB PDB website and will receive an educational book.

This is the second year in a row that Miguel has been awarded this Prize. Last year, he was recognized for his work Crystallographic Structures of Pavine N-methyltrasferase Complexes Reveal New Insights into Substrate Recognition and Catalytic Mechanism.
