At the Spring 2002 ICDD Technical Committee meeting in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, Prof. Evgeny Antipov of Russia was presented with the ICDD Distinguished Grantee Award

Prof. Antipov was born in Tuapse, a small town on the Black Sea coast. After graduating from secondary school with a gold medal, he attended Moscow State University and under the direction of his scientific advisor Prof. Kovba, Prof. Antipov graduated from Moscow State University with his Ph.D. and Doctor of Sciences. As a faculty member at Moscow State University, he became a full professor in 1998. His scientific interests include solid-state chemistry, synthesis of new inorganic compounds, crystal chemistry of inorganic compounds, and X-ray diffraction. He has published more than 170 papers, has delivered more than 40 invited lectures at international conferences, and has received several awards for his work in superconductivity. 

The ICDD Distinguished Grantee Award is presented to a grantee that has demonstrated exceptional contributions to the ICDD through Grant-in-Aid activities. Not only has Prof. Antipov been a significant contributor to the PDF database through his grant proposals (302 published patterns, 296 star quality), he has also been actively involved with the organization of grant workshops, the latest taking place in Lviv, Ukraine this past January. 

In 1990 Evgeny participated in the 15th IUCr Congress, his first conference outside the Soviet Union. He met Dr. Ron Jenkins, Principle Scientist at the ICDD in 1990, near an ICDD poster. Ron suggested that Prof. Antipov participate in the Grant-in-Aid Program. Eventually the grant was approved—the first grant Prof. Antipov received. The first ICDD grant workshop in Moscow followed in 1993 and became the starting point of a very active Russian participation in the Grant-in-Aid Program. More than one-third of the grant proposals reviewed at the March 2002 ICDD Spring meeting were from scientists who have attended or been associated with workshops organized by Prof. Antipov. 

Congratulations to Prof. Evgeny Antipov, ICDD Distinguished Grantee. Prof. Antipov is the second recipient, joining Prof. Ekkehart Tillmans from the University of Vienna, who won the award in 1998.
