Professor Dame Carol Robinson Received 2023 ASMS John.B.Fenn Award

The Kavli Institute for Nanoscience at the University of Oxford is proud to announce that its Director, Professor Dame Carol Robinson, has been awarded the prestigious 2023 ASMS John.B.Fenn Award for her distinguished contribution in mass spectrometry.

The American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) established the John B. Fenn Award in honor of the Nobel laureate John B. Fenn, who pioneered the development of electrospray ionization, a groundbreaking technique that revolutionized the field of mass spectrometry. The award recognizes scientists who have made significant and sustained contributions to the field of mass spectrometry.

Professor Dame Carol Robinson, a world-renowned chemist, has been at the forefront of the development and application of mass spectrometry techniques for over three decades. Her pioneering work has transformed our understanding of the structures and interactions of complex biological molecules, including proteins and membrane proteins.

The Kavli Institute for Nanoscience congratulates Professor Dame Carol Robinson on this well-deserved recognition of her exceptional contribution to the field of mass spectrometry.
