Research goal: To develop better ways of measuring large protein and nucleoprotein complexes by MS.
Best advice received: A few years before John Fenn won the Nobel Prize, he told me to “never look back, never second guess.” This happened as I moved from one position to another, but any time I started to doubt I’d made the right choice I thought of his advice and kept moving forward.
