ICDD Awards - Distinguished Fellowship Award 2010

Jim Kaduk (L), Tom Blanton (R)

This year, the Board of Directors recognized James Kaduk, Naperville, IL, as the 2010 Distinguished Fellow. This award is given to a member who has given long and meritorious service to the ICDD.

Both the ICDD and the X-ray diffraction community have benefitted from Dr. Kaduk’s long and distinguished career in this field.  Known internationally for his leadership in structural analysis from powder diffraction and allied quantum and computational techniques, Dr. Kaduk has generously shared his knowledge and expertise over the last several decades, through his volunteer efforts within the ICDD. He has served in numerous leadership roles, as Chairman to various Committee and Subcommittees, to Chairman of the Board of Directors.  Dr. Kaduk also shared the vision and implementation, along with several other ICDD leaders, of transforming the direction of the organization by interlinking the Powder Diffraction File™ with other scientific databases. The current state of the PDF® has been greatly influenced by Dr. Kaduk’s vital contributions.
