Thermo Fisher Scientific Scientist Dr. Alexander Makarov Receives Inaugural HUPO Science and Technology Award
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced that Dr. Alexander Makarov, its director of global research for life sciences mass spectrometry, has received the first HUPO Science and Technology Award from the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO). The award, which honors Dr. Makarov’s principal role in developing the Orbitrap mass analyzer, will be presented on September 7 at the HUPO 2011 10th World Congress in Geneva, Switzerland.
Dr. Makarov, who has authored more than 40 papers and holds more than 40 patents worldwide, first presented the Orbitrap mass analyzer in a paper published in 2000. The Thermo Scientific LTQ Orbitrap hybrid mass spectrometer, introduced in 2005, was the first commercial mass spectrometer to be based on this new type of mass analyzer. Orbitrap-based mass spectrometers offer performance that was previously only available from larger, more expensive, difficult-to-operate and less reliable Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometers, enabling more widespread use of ultra-high resolution and high mass accuracy instrumentation.
“We are extremely pleased to see Alexander receive this award, and we are grateful to HUPO for recognizing him in this way.” said Greg Herrema, senior vice president and president, analytical instruments group, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We are proud of the contributions that Orbitrap mass spectrometers have made to scientific knowledge in proteomics, metabolomics, metabolism and many other fields, and Alexander continues to play an important role in the advancement of Orbitrap technology.”
