Thermo Fisher Scientific will recognize the winners of the 2016 Thermo Scientific Tandem Mass Tag (TMT) Research Award at a ceremony held in conjunction with the 64th American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics in San Antonio. Now in its second year, the research competition selects three scientists from a pool of international applicants based on innovation and the potential impact of their work in proteomics. 

Winners receive awards of TMT and other mass spectrometry-related reagents, valued at $10,000, $7,500 and $5,000, at a ceremony that takes place during the annual conference. They will use these awards to quantify, normalize and streamline global protein expression studies using mass spectrometry.  

A panel of judges from Thermo Fisher and Proteome Sciences reviewed the applications and selected the following three recipients based on the scientific merit of their proposals: 

•       Noah Dephoure, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY (Gold Level recipient) 

•       Domitille Schvartz, University of Geneva, Geneva Switzerland (Silver Level recipient ) 

•       Sina Ghaemmaghami, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY (Bronze Level recipient) 

“We are delighted to offer the TMT Research Grant Award again this year,” said Monica O'Hara-Noonan, market development manager, protein biology bioscience at Thermo Fisher. “The number and quality of the applications increased substantially from our inaugural year, and we look forward to seeing what these talented scientists achieve with our latest instrumentation and reagents. The range and diversity of the submissions we received have provided us with an exciting glimpse into what’s next for proteomics.” 

“The tandem mass tag reagents have spawned a multiplexing revolution in quantitative proteomics, transforming the mass spectrometer into a robust experimental platform for investigating cellular systems,” said Noah Dephoure, assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medical College and a 2016 TMT Gold Level Grant Award recipient. “In my laboratory, we are using TMT to define the molecular mechanisms of tumor metastasis.”
