The American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) has awarded Assistant Professor Matt Bush a research award in the amount of $35,000. The ASMS presents two awards annually. Professor Bush’s award is sponsored by the Waters Corporation for the purpose of promoting academic research by young scientists in mass spectrometry. The awards are open to academic scientists within four years of joining the tenure track faculty or equivalent in a North American university.
More information about the ASMS Research Awards can be found on the award website.

We are delighted to welcome Dr. Matthew Bush to the Department of Chemistry. Dr. Bush specializes in using mass spectrometry to characterize the structures of large biological assemblies.
Dr. Bush earned his B.A. in 2003 from Carleton College and his Ph.D. in 2008 with Professors Evan R. Williams and Richard J. Saykally at the University of California, Berkeley. His graduate research used mass spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy to probe the structures of hydrated and biomolecular ions. Dr. Bush is currently at the University of Oxford, where he is a Waters Research Fellow with Professor Carol V. Robinson at the Department of Chemistry, a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, and developing ion mobility techniques to characterize the shapes of protein complexes.
Dr. Bush will begin his research program here in July, focusing on bioanalytical chemistry, biophysical chemistry, and structural biology applications using mass spectrometry based techniques to characterize biological assemblies.
