The 2019 Ron Hites Award, to be presented on Wednesday, June 5, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, will honor Julia Laskin of Purdue University (West Lafayette, Indiana) and her coauthors for their paper, “Towards High-Resolution Tissue Imaging Using Nanospray Desorption Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry Coupled to Shear Force Microscopy.” The paper was published in 2018 in the Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (JASMS) (S.N. Nguyen, R.L. Sontag, J.P. Carson, R.A. Corley, C. Ansong, and J. Laskin, J. Am. Soc. Mass Spectrom. 29:316Y322 [2018]).

The award recognizes an outstanding publication of original research based on innovative aspects, technical and presentation quality, and likely stimulation of future research or applications. It is named in honor of Prof. Ron Hites of Indiana University, who led the creation of JASMS in 1988 while he served as president of ASMS. The award includes $2000 and certificates.
