2017 Molecular and Cellular Proteomics/American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Lectureship Award

The Molecular and Cellular Proteomics (MCP) / American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) Lectureship Award will be presented to Stuart Haslam at the Society for Glycobiology Annual meeting in Portland, Oregon.

The MCP Journal was created in 2001 to address the growing needs of the proteomics community. Subsequently the MCP/ASBMB award was established in 2013 to honor scientists that have been at the forefront of the emerging field of glycomics and glycoproteomics. This year’s recipient, who is currently a Reader in Structural Glycobiology at Imperial College London, has made seminal contributions in the glycosciences. Dr. Haslam’s research is focused on the development and application of high sensitivity mass spectrometry techniques to determine the structures of glycoconjugates from diverse biological origins ranging from bacteria to humans. His methodological developments in this area have been fundamental to the establishment of the scientific field of glycomics. A particular focus area is the structural characterization of glycoconjugates involved in host pathogen interactions. His contributions and knowledge of the field are highly regarded not only by his peers, but also by MCP who has renewed Stuart for another 3-year term on the Editorial Board of the journal.
