Emily continues to serve as chair of the WIN research group. During this past year, she also took on the responsibility of serving on the 2018 Program Committee. Her focus has been on building the Mass Spectrometry content and community for this meeting.
For all her contributions, and the contagious passion and energy that she has poured into the ABRF, the 2018 award is presented to Emily Chen.
