Gary Kruppa has joined MRM Proteomics, a University of Victoria spinoff, as its president and CEO, Genome BC said this week. Kruppa formerly was VP of business development for Bruker Daltonics.

Genome BC also said Christoph Borchers, MMRP's chief scientific officer and director of the UVic-Genome BC Proteomics Centre, has been jointly appointed as the proteomics chair for the Jewish General Hospital at McGill University.


Paul Menter has joined SomaLogic as VP and general manager of Life Science Tools. In the role he will be responsible for overseeing growth of the firm's current proteomics tools and expanding its offerings to life science researchers.

Menter recently was GM of Bioseparations at Thermo Fisher Scientific and at Dionex, and before that he was division manager of lab separations and of North American Sales and Service at Bio-Rad Laboratories.
