Plenary Speakers

Albert J. R. Heck

Utrecht University

Albert J. R. Heck (1964) received his PhD in 1993 from the University of Amsterdam. He worked till 1996 as a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University and Sandia National Laboratories (USA). In 1996 he became senior research fellow and later lecturer at the University of Warwick (UK). Since 1998 he is professor in Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics at Utrecht University (NL).

Heck is among others recipient of the Field and Franklin Award (ACS), the Krebs Medal (FEBS), Thomson Award (IMSC) and the NWO Spinoza Prize. He is member of EMBO and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences and Arts. His research focuses on the development and applications of mass spectrometry-based proteomics and structural biology. Heck pioneered technologies for phospho-enrichment, and the use of alternative proteases and hybrid peptide fragmentation techniques. Besides, Heck is also known for his expertise in structural biology, being a pioneer in both native mass spectrometry and cross-linking mass spectrometry.

Profile of Partners

ACS Publications, a division of the American Chemical Society, is a nonprofit scholarly publisher of 75 peer-reviewed journals and a range of eBooks at the interface of chemistry and allied sciences, including physics and biology. ACS Publications journals are among the most cited, most trusted and most read within the scientific literature. Respected for their editorial rigor, ACS journals offer high-quality service to authors and readers, including rapid time to publication, a range of channels for researchers to access the Society’s cutting-edge Web and mobile delivery platforms and a comprehensive program of open access options for authors and their funders. ACS Publications also publishes Chemical & Engineering News — the Society’s newsmagazine covering science and technology, business and industry, government and policy and education and employment aspects of the chemistry field.

Founded in 1938, the American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry represents the largest organization world-wide dedicated to the analytical sciences and the people who carry out this critically important work. The Division is comprised of chemical professionals employed in industry, academia, and government  – as well as younger colleagues who are training to join these professions full-time. As the only organization in the US completely dedicated to chemical measurement science, its vision is to advance the science of chemical characterization and measurement to shape the future, and its goal is to promote analytical chemistry globally by enhancing professional opportunities, educating members and society, and fostering collaborations
