CNPN 2018 Award Winners

Pawson
2018 CNPN Tony Pawson Proteomics Award

Dr. Gilles Lajoie (pictured second from right) is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Western Ontario. He is the Founder and Director of the Biological Mass Spectrometry Laboratory at Western. His research encompasses several areas from the synthesis of non-proteinaceous amino acids, peptide chemistry, design of enzyme inhibitors, to biological mass spectrometry and proteomics. His group was one the first in Canada to perform the characterization of biomolecules by mass spectrometry. With colleagues in the Department of Computer science he was instrumental in the development of a de novo software for the elucidation of peptide sequences from MS/MS data. He applied new proteomics techniques to the study of human embryonic stem cells. More recently he used proteomic approaches to determine the mechanism by which mesenchymal stem cells lead to the formation of insulin-producing Beta-cells. This finding may have significant impact for the treatment of juvenile diabetes.
