The 2023 Regitze R. Vold Memorial Prize awarded to Rob Schurko

The 2023 Regitze R. Vold Memorial Prize is awarded to Rob Schurko. Rob has made a large number of important contributions to the field of solid-state NMR over the past 25 years. His research interests are very diverse, and he has made particularly impactful discoveries in the areas of quadrupolar nuclei and applications to pharmaceuticals. He contributed to the development of several useful broad-band pulse sequences and related techniques which have enabled the routine acquisition of ultrawide-line NMR spectra. His ongoing work on crystal structure prediction using novel NMR crystallography methods holds promise for the characterization of novel crystal forms used in the pharmaceutical industry.
