Dr Lynne Thomas won the CCDC Chemical Crystallography Prize for Younger Scientists 2014 and gave a prize lecture at the BCA Spring Meeting in Loughborough. The award was in recognition of her published work in the area of chemical crystallography - her particular focus relating the role of disorder in crystalline or semi-crystalline materials to the materials function.
Also at the BCA Spring Meeting, Matthew Bryant gave the Young Crystallographers Prize talk, which was awarded for the best talk in the Young Crystallographers Satellite Meeting with Industrial relevance.
Lucy Saunders and Louise Hamdy won poster prizes; Lucy's was the IUCr (International Union of Crystallography) sponsored prize and Louise won the Young Crystallographer's poster prize.
Last but not least, Prof Paul Raithby gave a plenary lecture on Understanding the Solid-State into the Next Hundred Years.
