The Power List 2014

Paola Picotti

Assistant Professor, Institute of Biochemistry, ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Calling: “Proteins are fascinating molecules. They supervise basic functions in cells through a variety of complex structures and interactions, which makes the development of methods for their analysis challenging and stimulating.”

: “No. I would still opt for a strong background in chemistry and a focus on method development.”

Emphasis: “We study the effects of intracellular protein misfolding and aggregation using novel quantitative and structural proteomics approaches.”

Triumph: “The development of a method to analyze protein structural changes directly in biological samples and on a large scale.”

Hope: “Exploiting the power of the novel methods we developed to advance our knowledge on protein misfolding and support the identification of therapeutic strategies for protein misfolding diseases; for example, Parkinson’s disease.”

Advice: “Follow only what interests you, entertains you, and tickles your curiosity. Expose yourself to different mindsets and scientific backgrounds.”

Top 40 Under 40

In 2013, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential analytical scientists – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. Our 2014 Top 40 Under 40 list almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977.
