The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities announced that David Friedman and Thomas Neubert have been elected to the organization's executive board.

Friedman is co-associate director of the Vanderbilt University Proteomics Laboratory shared resource facility, Mass Spectrometry Research Center, and a research associate professor of biochemistry at the university's Medical Center.

Neubert is a tenured associate professor of pharmacology at the New York University School of Medicine and director of the NYU Protein Analysis Facility, the NYU Protein Mass Spectrometry Core for Neuroscience, and the NYU Clinical Proteomics Core Facility.

They replace Scottie Adams and Jeff Kowalak as executive board members effective immediately following ABRF's annual meeting in March.
