Bioanalysis has recently published an open access review (www.bioanalysis-zone.com/articles/the-use-of-selected-reaction-monitoring-in-quantitative-proteomics/) article written by the first ever winner of the Young Investigator.
The prize was awarded to Stephen Holman (University of Manchester, UK) back in 2010 for his pioneering work concerning the fragmentation behavior of protonated β-blockers using low-energy collision-induced dissociation-tandem mass spectrometry. Two years on, Holman has recently published an article in the latest issue of Bioanalysis (volume 4, issue 14) (www.future-science.com/toc/bio/4/14) titled: The use of selected reaction monitoring in quantitative proteomics, highlighting Holman’s position and progress in the field.
Speaking to Bioanalysis regarding his recent publication, Holman highlights his enthusiasm,
“I am extremely proud to be publishing a paper in Bioanalysis. The journal has obtained an international reputation in the field in a very short time, which is a testament to the quality of the material published; I, along with my co-authors who I would like to take this opportunity to thank, are pleased to be able to contribute to that material.”
First nominated in 2009 by his supervisor (www.future-science.com/doi/full/10.4155/bio.09.45), Holman was awarded (www.future-science.com/doi/full/10.4155/bio.10.127) the prize the following year by the international editorial advisory board of Bioanalysis; the prize constituted 1 year’s free subscription to the journal, both in print and online, and permanent open access of Holman’s next published paper in Bioanalysis.
This award continues to highlight Bioanalysis’ enthusiasm towards the younger generation by offering up and coming bioanalysts the opportunity to showcase and promote their research. Young Investigator nominations are frequently published in Bioanalysis throughout the year, with the voting for the 2012 award open now.

As Holman goes on to describe, “The efforts of Bioanalysis in fostering the next generation of scientists through promotion of their work is a huge benefit to the individuals involved, which will hopefully translate into a benefit to the community in the long-term. I have greatly benefited from this inaugural Young Investigator Award, and I'm certain that other young scientists will do too in the future through being associated with Bioanalysis.”
If you would like to hear more about Holman’s research, he will also be presenting a Webinar on The Power of Selected Reaction Monitoring in Quantitative Proteomics scheduled to take place on Thursday, August 30th, 2012 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT; registration is now open (www3.gotomeeting.com/register/776836190).
