Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) presented Prof. Sarah Trimpin of Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan with the ASMS 2010 Waters Research Award, an award presented annually that recognizes scientific achievement in mass spectrometry. The award presentation took place at the Salt Palace Convention Center during 58th annual meeting of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS).

In presenting the award to Dr. Trimpin, Waters' Lance Nicolaysen, Ph.D. said, "By employing mass spectrometry in new ways, Dr. Trimpin has enhanced the potential of mass spectrometry as a tool for disease research. Thanks to her efforts, and the efforts of previous award winners, we're getting closer to the day when curing diseases like Alzheimers and others is possible."

Recipients of the Waters Research Award are selected by an independent panel of mass spectrometry scientists and experts. The year 2010 marks 24 consecutive years of Waters award sponsorship.

Dr. Trimpin joined Wayne State University in 2008 as an Assistant Professor in Analytical Chemistry. Her list of accomplishments includes authoring many research articles, books, book chapters, review and perspective articles, as well as invited lectures. She has chaired sessions on new developments in ionization, imaging by mass spectrometry, and polymer analysis by MS at previous ASMS conferences. She was a 2006 Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) Young Investigator Awardee and in 2007 she was named the Top Young Investigator by Genome Technology Magazine highlighting "the best and brightest people who are poised to make serious contributions to their areas of interest." More recently she received the National Science Foundation CAREER AWARD and the DuPont Young Investigator Award.

The focus of Professor Trimpin's fundamental mass spectrometry research is on tissue imaging by high-sensitivity matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry. Her discoveries have led to new approaches to imaging tissues, not only for lipids and metabolites, but for higher-mass compounds including proteins and maybe even protein complexes, or aggregates of proteins.

Following Waters introduction of the Synapt G2 HDMS Mass Spectrometer at ASMS 2009, Waters installed it's first Synapt G2 in the United States in Dr. Trimpin's lab at Wayne State University in December. The mass spectrometer is the first quadrupole time-of-flight instrument to perform ion mobility experiments to separate molecules by their mass, charge, size, and shape and quantify them over a wide range of concentrations. Dr. Trimpin plans to use the instrument's MALDI and ion mobility capability for novel research in different fields of inquiry.
