The Georges Guiochon Faculty Fellowship award will be presented at 7:00 pm on Monday, June 20. This year’s awardee is Dr. Ying Ge, who is an associate professor in the Department of Cell & Regenerative Biology and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Dr. Ge earned a B.S. degree from Peking University and received a Ph.D. from Cornell University under Professors Fred McLafferty and Tadhg Begley. After receiving her Ph.D., she worked in the pharmaceutical industry, first as a scientist at Wyeth Research and then as a group leader at PPD, Inc. She joined the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2006 as the Director of Mass Spectrometry in the Human Proteomics Program, and in 2012 she was appointed associate professor. Her research focuses on mass spectrometry and proteomics with cardiac biology and medicine. In conjunction with her work with top-down proteomics, her laboratory has been developing novel multidimensional liquid chromatography strategies to separate intact proteins.

 

The fellowship was created to honor the memory of Georges Guiochon, who was a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Tennessee and a renowned master in the field of chromatography theory. The fellowship recognizes his major contributions to high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and his interest in developing the careers of young scientists in the field. The award includes a $15,000 research grant along with a commemorative plaque. Eligibility for the award extends to all full-time faculty members at U.S. academic or government institutions who are within 10 years of their first independent research appointments. The fellowship is sponsored by HPLC, Inc.
