Early days in drug discovery by crystallography - personal recollections

Acta Crystallographica Section A Early days in drug discovery by crystallography – personal recollections Received 10 December 2012 Accepted 11 December 2012 The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, 1G Royal Parade, Parkville, Victoria, Australia. Correspondence e-mail: The influences of Lawrence Bragg and Max Perutz are evident in thecontemporary emphasis on ‘structural enablement' in drug discovery. Onthis occasion of the centenary of Bragg's equation, his role in supporting theearliest structural studies of biological materials at the Cavendish Laboratory isremembered. The 1962 Nobel Prizes for the structures of DNA and proteinsmarked the golden anniversary of the von Laue and Bragg discoveries.
