Federica Fiorini from the Grenoble Alpes University Hospital, France, has been awarded the 2022 Darlene Solomon Award by Agilent Technologies (California, USA) and FeMS (Females in Mass Spectrometry)

“I am extremely honoured and excited to be receiving such an important award. Mass spectrometry-based metabolomics has the enormous potential of enabling the deciphering of global and dynamic responses to biological events. I am eager to further contribute to this field,” said Fiorini.

The award was presented at the iSLS10–10th International Singapore Lipid Symposium, which was held 8–10 March 2022 at the National University of Singapore. It was created for early‑career female scientists to promote mass spectrometry research and provide financial support to attend various mass spectrometry conferences.

As the 2022 awardee, Fiorini will be able to travel to mass spectrometry conferences, as well as spend time at the state-of-the-art Agilent Global Solutions Development Center in Singapore, working alongside senior Agilent scientists to gain hands-on practical experience.

FeMS is an international community‑led initiative to create a network of support for women in the field of mass spectrometry. More information and resources can be found at https://femalesinms.com
