The Power List 2021


Director of Research, Life Science MS, Thermo Fisher Scientific; and Professor of High Resolution Mass Spectrometry, Department of Chemistry, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands

Controversial opinion? In MS, I believe that high-resolution accurate mass instruments (HRAM) could exceed limits of quantitation of nominal mass instruments, like triple quadrupoles. And I also believe that HRAM instruments could be produced and sold at much lower price points!

Advice? Generally, I would advise to learn from others – but not to copy them. Also, for any high-risk research/activity, I would recommend to always have “Plan B” actively developed, in case things go south.
