Three up-and-comers? Rebecca Beveridge (University of Strathclyde) for her brilliant work on disordered proteins with MS. Charlotte Uetrecht (HPI and XFEL) investigates structural changes of viral protein complexes with modern MS methods.

Heroes? So many! But as I get older, it’s all the brilliant women who have managed to be academic leaders over the past 50 years – they rock!
Advice? Work hard, collaborate with people with different expertise and enjoy yourself.
