Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.
Research goal: To develop innovative technologies to understand cardiac disease, identify new molecular targets for diagnosis, and ultimately provide novel treatments for heart failure.
Eureka moment: I conceived the idea to develop a photo-cleavable surfactant for top-down proteomics in 2011; a talented postdoc (Tania Guardado) and a brilliant graduate student (Kyle Brown) subsequently synthesized a photo-cleavable anionic surfactant for this application.
Nominator comment:“Ge is conducting cutting-edge research that is making waves in the fields of MS, separations, proteomics and (eventually) personalized medicine.”
