The Gregori Aminoff Prize rewards documented, individual contributions in the field of crystallography, including areas concerned with the dynamics of the formation and determination of crystal structures.
The Gregori Aminoff Prize in Crystallography 2018 was awarded to Piet Gros from Utrecht University in the Netherlands:
“for his fundamental contributions to understanding the complement system-mediated innate immune response”.
