Faces of Mass Spectrometry

As an initiative of the ASMS Diversity Committee, JASMS editors are pleased to share the “Faces of Mass Spectrometry” interview series. The goal of this series is to highlight the diversity of ASMS members, as well as to demonstrate the various paths that one can undertake to achieve a career in mass spectrometry.

Who Should be the Next Face of Mass Spectrometry?

We welcome nominations (and self-nominations) of members to profile in the Faces of Mass Spectrometry.


Nominate the next Face of Mass Spectrometry

Eligibility & Nomination Process: We seek to feature current ASMS members. As part of the nomination we request a 300 word (max) statement to tell us 'Why this person be highlighted in the Faces of Mass Spectrometry and/or How does this person represent diversity in the ASMS?' There is no deadline to submit a nomination (or self-nomination.) Nominations will be evaluated on an ongoing basis by the Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Nominations will be held for two years.
