Simone Sidoli is Winner of the 2022 EAS Young Investigator Award

Simone Sidoli, of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and the Einstein Proteomics Core, has been named the winner of the 2022 the Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) Young Investigator Award. He will be presented with the award on November 15, In an award session at EAS in Plainsboro, New Jersey.

Sidoli earned his PhD while working in Ole N. Jensen’s group at the University of Southern Denmark where he developed methods for analyzing the crosstalk between histone post-translational modifications. In 2014, he joined Benjamin A. Garcia’s laboratory within the Epigenetics Institute at the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). During this time, he applied his mass spectrometry methods to link cell signaling cascade (protein phosphorylation) with chromatin changes (histone modifications). These methods include improvements in quantification accuracy of histone codes, enhancement of throughput, quantification of chromatin accessibility, and multi-omics data integration.

Sidoli has been a member of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) and the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO). He has co-authored approximately 120 scientific publications, mostly in the field of proteomics and chromatin biology.

Each year, the Eastern Analytical Symposium honors analytical chemists who have distinguished career achievements. The recipients of these awards advanced these fields by superior work in developing theory, techniques, or instrumentation.
