A pioneer of ribosome crystallography, Dr. Yonath has won numerous awards in addition to the Nobel Prize such as being the first winner of the European Crystallography Prize, established to recognize significant achievements by European crystallographers,. She is also a member of the Israeli Academy for Science and Humanities. She began this work in the late 1970s, long before most scientists thought it possible to crystallize such a large, irregular structure. In 1980, she created the first ribosome crystals. Dr. Yonath is also a pioneer in the use of cryocrystallography, flash-freezing crystals, to minimize damage caused by intense X-rays.
