Frank H. Field & Joe L. Franklin Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mass Spectrometry: Carol V. Robinson
Sponsor: Waters Corp.
Citation: For developing fundamental processes that allow membrane and soluble protein complexes to retain biologically significant states during mass spectrometry, prompting new fields of research.
Current position: Doctor Lee’s Professor of Chemistry, University of Oxford
Education: M.S., chemistry, University of Wales; Ph.D., chemistry, University of Cambridge
Robinson on what gets her creative juices flowing: “The excitement of seeing a new mass spectrum for a protein complex that I never thought we would be able to get into the gas phase. I then like to brainstorm ideas and use my creative juices to try to design further experiments and to try to gain some new mechanistic insight and find out something novel about this protein complex.”
What her colleagues say: “Carol has an incredible instinct for important and new breakthroughs in her chosen field of science and just as importantly the ability to do something about them.”—Michael T. Bowers, University of California, Santa Barbara
