Stephen Pennington from University College Dublin and Michelle Cilia from the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service have won Integromics' Proteomics Mass Spectrometry Research Grant competition.

The company said that it conducted the competition to discover "creative" uses for its OmicsHub proteomics software. The two winners will each receive a free one-year license to the software.

Cilia is conducting research on plant virus transmission by aphids. Her team is testing the OmicsHub Proteomics platform for potential integration into a biomarker discovery platform to provide tools for data sharing, network analysis, and protein quantification.

Pennington is a professor of proteomics at UC Dublin and is involved in the university’s efforts to build a mass spectrometry clinical utility to discover and develop protein biomarker assays to establish disease and clinical decision from patient samples.
