2020 HTC Innovation Award – Ryan Kelly
April 01, 2020
LCGC Europe sponsored the 2020 HTC Innovation Award to highlight innovation in separation science. The winner, Ryan Kelly, from Brigham Young University, in Utah, USA, has introduced an impressive array of innovative approaches to advance proteomics research using nano-liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (nano‑LC–MS), LC–MS, and two‑dimensional (2D)-LC–MS, including the development and application of nanodroplet processing in one pot for trace samples (nanoPOTS). This platform, when combined with nano-LC–MS/MS, can identify more than 3000 protein groups in 10 cells, a greater level of proteome coverage than was previously possible for samples containing 5000 cells.
