Matthew Merski among MINIATURA laureates


Dr Matthew Merski was awarded a grant in the first edition of the MINIATURA programme from the National Science Centre. This award is directed at talented researchers with a doctorate, who seek support for single research activities such as preliminary studies or research stays abroad. The funding will support Matthew in kick-starting a new project on the variability of hydrogen bonds in proteins.

Congratulations to Matthew for winning his first independent funding in Poland!

Philip Coppens (1930 – 2017)


Prof. Philip Coppens SUNY Distinguished Professor Emeritus and Distinguished Research Professor in the University at Buffalo Department of Chemistry, passed away on June 21. He was 86. He was a worldwide known crystallographer. On behalf of our entire group, particularly those from us who worked in his group at Buffalo, we want to extend our deepest condolences to Professor Coppens’ family.

Prof. Philip Coppens was born in Amersfoort, Holland and received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physical chemistry from the University of Amsterdam, Holland in 1954 and 1960, respectively. Then Philip went on to complete postdoctoral work at Brookhaven National Laboratory, followed by professional appointments at the Weizmann Institute and Brookhaven. Philip joined SUNY Buffalo in 1968 where he was the Henry M. Woodburn Chair of Chemistry.

Prof. Philip Coppens published more than 450 papers so far and delivered more than 300 lectures and seminars. His publications have been cited ca. 24 000 times and his H index is equal to 74. Three of his papers got more than 1000 citations, 43 papers more than 100 citations. He is the author of two monographs: „X-ray Charge Densities and Chemical Bonding” published by Oxford University Press, New York, 1997 and “Synchrotron Radiation Crystallography” published by Academic Press, London, 1992 and editor and co-editor of four others.

As he was awarded the Kolos Prize at our Department one can find more information about him at the following address:

Prof. Philip Coppens is survived by his wife Marguerite Coppens; his sons Alon, Eldad and Daniel D. Coppens; his grandchildren, Talia, Alex and Ben Coppens, and his beloved nephews and nieces, Micha, Judith and David De Vries and Marion Bachra. 

Dear Philip, many thanks for your outstanding contribution to science, for all your new challenging scientific ideas making modern crystallography a real frontier of science, and also for so many years of friendly and fruitful contacts between you and researches from different Polish scientific institutions. Will all miss you.

Crystallographers from Warsaw
