Framingham, MA — SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, has announced that the MSB Strategic Planning Committee has selected Dr. Amy E. Herr, Lester John & Lynne Dewar Lloyd Distinguished Professor of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley, and a Chan Zuckerberg (CZ) Biohub Investigator as the recipient of the 2018 SCIEX Microscale Separations, Innovations Medal and Award, for Current and Breakthrough Research in the Field of Electro-Driven Separations. The Medal Ceremony will be presented on Monday, February 19 as part of a Special Award Plenary Session at the 34th International Symposium on Microscale Bioseparations (MSB 2018) in Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

The SCIEX Microscale Separations, Innovations Medal and Award (previously the Arnold O'Beckman Award) is an annual award given to an individual for remarkable career achievements, with particular consideration being given to the development of new methods, techniques and high-impact applications in the field of electro-driven separations. The award is supported by SCIEX, a key driver in capillary electrophoresis technology after integrating the Beckman Coulter CE team in 2014, and comprises of a Medal, a Diploma and a Monetary Prize. Recipients are chosen by a Microscale Separations and Bio-analysis (MSB) Symposium Series selection committee that ranks the candidates according to the recommendation of peers and defined metrics (iCite from NIH).

Dr. Herr has been a driving force in providing tools for improved insight into disease progression in cancer, cardiovascular issues and also neurodegenerative diseases. She earned her BS in Engineering and Applied Science from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and a MS in Mechanical Engineering and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University in 1997, 1999 and 2002, respectively. Dr. Herr began her career as a staff member in the Biosystems Research Group at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, CA. Later, she joined the University of California Berkeley, as an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2012, and ultimately promoted to Full Professor in 2015.

"Dr. Herr has been a driving force in providing tools for improved insight into disease progression in cancer, cardiovascular issues and also neurodegenerative diseases. Professor Herr is an elected Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). She is also a Board Member of the Chemical & Biological Microsystems Society (CBMS), which oversees the microTAS conferences, a standing member of the NIH Nanotechnology Study Section, and is an Advisory Board Member for the UCSF Rosenman Institute and the journals Analytical Chemistry and ACS Sensors. She has served as a Co-Director of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Single Cell Analysis summer course as well as Chair and Vice-chair of the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on the Physics & Chemistry of Microfluidics. She is faculty advisor to the UC Berkeley chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and the Graduate Women in Engineering (GWE)

"This annual Medal and Award sponsored by SCIEX acknowledges the accomplishments of those that have showcased exemplary uses of capillary electrophoresis," said Jeff Chapman, Sr. Director, SCIEX. "Dr. Herr's use of IEF on samples from single cells to discriminate between protein isoforms differing by a single charge has inspired many scientists, both utilizing and building upon using relatively simple designs that give powerful performance."

"It is an honor that MSB is recognizing my laboratory’s research contributions through the SCIEX Microscale Separations, Innovations Medal and Award," said Dr. Amy E. Herr, Lester John & Lynne Dewar Lloyd Distinguished Professor of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley, and a Chan Zuckerberg (CZ) Biohub Investigator. "Much like these organizations, we are driven by the goals of creating knowledge and then inventing solutions to address pressing questions. Thank you for this opportunity."
