Up-and-comers? Rebekah Gundry: combines and extends cell surface protein labeling to identify key novel plasma membrane proteins. Combines proteomics in the academic world with industry partnerships to carry out translational work. Lisa Jones: Super cool work to understand protein complexes and their structure in vivo. It is the in vivo part that is mind blowing. Also, she is automating her workflows to allow for higher throughput to address more biological questions and challenges. Peter Nemes: Was carrying out single cell proteomics before it was cool. He directly measures proteins in single cells with the precision and accuracy we all wish for.
