Heroes? Carol Robinson at Oxford continues to be a great role model and hero. She is one of the pioneers of developing native mass spectrometry methods in the realm of structural biology, and she was truly fearless in pursuing the analysis of huge macromolecular protein complexes. The insights gained from her work have opened the eyes of many scientists and established a foundation for an entire new field. Another hero is Alexander Makarov of Thermo Scientific Fisher who developed the Orbitrap mass spectrometer. His spirit of innovation led to a transformation in high performance mass spectrometry.
