Judit Nagy, an Imperial College London research scientist, renowned protein chemist, and pioneer in the field of proteomics, died in a traffic accident at the age of 47, reports The Guardian. She focused her research on producing and studying the enzyme catalase-peroxidase to determine its role in the activation of the tuberculosis drug isoniazid, the Guardian says. Recently, she began working on developing standardized methods for proteomics analysis and diagnostic proteomic methods for early detection of ovarian cancer and some genetic diseases in children, the article adds.
