Waters has welcomed Dr Ganesh Anand’s laboratory at the National University of Singapore into its Centres of Innovation Programme, making it the first such centre in Asia. The programme recognizes and supports scientists making breakthroughs in many areas, including health and life science research, food safety, environmental protection and sports medicine. Dr Anand and his colleagues are recognized for their research into protein-protein, protein-ligand and protein-nucleic acid interactions.

Tim Riley, PhD, Vice President of Strategic Innovation, Waters Division and Programme Director of Waters’ Centres of Innovation Programme, said, “As a young scientist, and someone who very early on could see the enormous potential of amide H/D exchange mass spectrometry, Dr Anand’s expert knowledge of the technology and how to apply it is truly innovative.”

Dr Anand has been working in the field of amide H/D exchange mass spectrometry since 1999. “When I first established the structural mass spectrometry laboratory at NUS, we were carrying out experiments in this field at a much slower pace,” he said. “Being chosen as a Centre of Innovation is a real honour and very humbling. Waters and its structural MS tools have had a huge impact on structural biology. The growth of this field would not have been possible without Waters’ involvement and their technology development. This technology has enormous potential for the life sciences and pharmaceutical industries in Singapore and establishes NUS as a unique centre in the region providing NUS students and scientists alike, access to state-of-the-art technology for a wide range of applications.”
