Candidates for Member-at-Large Publications

Hines, Kelly M.

Kelly M. Hines

University of Georgia

Candidate Statement
It’s a great honor to be nominated for the ASMS Member-at-Large for Publications. Throughout my career, ASMS and JASMS publications have been essential resources for my education and development as a researcher in the field of mass spectrometry. I’m excited for the opportunity to serve our society and its scholarly and educational publications. 

Kelly M. Hines received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Florida and completed her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry under the guidance of Prof. John A. McLean at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Hines was a postdoctoral fellow at the Mayo Clinic Metabolomics Resource Core and a senior fellow in the lab of Prof. Libin Xu at the University of Washington School of Pharmacy. In 2019, Dr. Hines joined the faculty of University of Georgia’s Department of Chemistry as an Assistant Professor.

Dr. Hines’ research interests include the development and applications of high-throughput and multi-dimensional ion mobility-mass spectrometry methods, with a particular emphasis on lipidomics. With the support of an NIAID Career Transition Award, a major focus of the Hines lab’s research is to elucidate the contributions of endogenous and exogenous lipids to the development of antibiotic resistance. She has authored over 30 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters. Dr. Hines has been recognized as a Female Role Model in Analytical Chemistry by Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry and as one of JASMS’s 2021 Outstanding Emerging Investigators.

Dr. Hines served on the Ion Mobility Spectrometry Interest Group from 2020-2022, and a session chair for the Lipidomics: New Technologies and Applications track at the ASMS conference. In addition to ASMS, Dr. Hines is a member of the International Lipidomics Society, the American Chemical Society, and the American Society for Microbiology. She frequently reviews for Analytical Chemistry, JASMS, and Journal of Proteome Research and serves on the Journal of Bacteriology editorial board.

Marty, Michael T2

Michael T. Marty

University of Arizona

Candidate Statement
Since my first annual meeting as a graduate student, ASMS has been my scientific home and community. JASMS is one of the few journals I read regularly (not just when an article pops up on Twitter), and it plays an important role in advancing mass spectrometry science. I am running for Member-at-Large for Publications because I see exciting opportunities with new technologies and new approaches to publishing, and I would look forward to collaborating with stakeholders to help make publishing easier, more accessible, and more inclusive.

Michael T. Marty earned his B.A. in chemistry and mathematics at St. Olaf College in 2010. He completed his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry as a Springborn Fellow at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with Prof. Steve Sligar in 2013, where he collaborated with Prof. Mike Gross at Washington University St. Louis to perform some of the first native mass spectrometry analysis of lipid nanodiscs. He then went on to postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford with Prof. Dame Carol Robinson, further advancing native MS of nanodiscs and developing UniDec software for analysis of complex native MS data. After too many years in cold climates, he joined the faculty at The University of Arizona in 2016 where he is currently an Associate Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry.

Dr. Marty’s research applies lipoprotein nanodiscs with mass spectrometry to study membrane proteins, membrane-active peptides, and their interactions with lipid bilayers. His research group has advanced native MS to study lipid binding to membrane proteins embedded in nanodiscs and to understand how the lipid composition of the nanodiscs affects oligomerization and drug binding of the embedded membrane proteins. They are currently working on developing lipidomic MS methods to quantify natural lipids bound to membrane proteins in bilayers. Finally, he continues to develop UniDec open-source software and support the diverse community of users. He received the ASMS Research Award in 2018, the JASMS Outstanding Reviewer Award in 2019, and the Ron Hites Award in 2021.

Dr. Marty has chaired sessions at several ASMS conferences and helped teach the Native MS Short Course as a guest instructor. He co-founded the Special Interest Group on Native MS and has organized several evening workshops at the ASMS annual meeting. He is currently co-organizing the 2023 Sanibel Meeting on Membrane Proteins and their Complexes and is looking forward to finally having the meeting after two years of COVID delays. He recently joined the editorial board of JASMS.
