The ASMS Award for Distinguished Contribution in Mass Spectrometry is named to honor the memory of John B. Fenn who shared the 2002  Nobel Prize for the development of electrospray Ionization. John joined ASMS in 1986 and remained an active member until his passing in 2010. 

The John B. Fenn Award for a Distinguished Contribution in Mass Spectrometry recognizes a focused or singular achievement in fundamental or applied mass spectrometry in contrast to awards that recognize lifetime  achievement. Eligibility is restricted to members of ASMS. Nominations will be held for three years. The award is conferred at the ASMS Annual Conference with the presentation of a $10,000 cash award, a recognition plaque, and the award lecture.

Nominations are due November 30.  Nomination Form (PDF fill-in form).
