Waters presented Wayne State University professor Sarah Trimpin this week with the American Society of Mass Spectroscopy 2010 Waters Research Award.

The award, which the company presents annually to recognize scientific achievement in mass spectrometry, was given to Trimpin for her work developing new approaches using MALDI mass spectrometry to image tissues for high-mass compounds like proteins and protein complexes.

Trimpin joined Wayne State University in 2008 as an assistant professor in analytical chemistry. She was a 2006 HUPO Young Investigator Awardee and this year received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the DuPont Young Investigator Award.
