Congratulations to Edward Snell on being elected as American Crystallographic Association Fellow!

The American Crystallographic Association – the Structural Science Society – established the Fellows distinction to recognize a high level of excellence in scientific research, teaching, and professional duties, but also service, leadership, and personal engagement in the world of crystallography and science. The Fellows distinction celebrates the excellence of American Crystallographic Association members and promotes their recognition worldwide to constituencies outside, such as their employers, other scientific societies, and the government. Fellows serve as scientific ambassadors to the broader scientific community and the general public to advance science education, research, knowledge, interaction, and collaboration.

Drs. Edward Snell (Chief Executive Officer and President of the Hauptman Woodward Medical Research Institute) was elected fellow of the American Crystallographic Association – The Structural Science Society. 

A Fellow is defined as “a Member whose efforts on behalf of the advancement of crystallography or its applications that are scientifically or socially distinguished.” Examples of areas in which nominees may have made significant contributions are research; teaching; technology; services to professional societies; administration in academia, industry, and government; and communicating and interpreting science to the public. Fellows are elected annually by the current group of Fellows.

Drs. Snell is proud to be joining the ACA Fellow ranks, which include three Nobel laureates. Dr. Snell was “both humbled and honored by this recognition”.  As engaging and active member of the ACA for many years, he is an exemplary scientist and mentor, visionary leader, and strong champions of crystallography and structural science.” It demonstrates the impact of structural biology in Buffalo and its recognition nationally.
