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.
