Description

Congratulations once again Dr. Vicki Wysocki, the recipient of the prestigious 2022 Thompson Medal Award from the Mass Spectrometry Foundation. 

The Thomson Medal Award is named after Sir J. J. Thomson, who was responsible for the first mass spectrograph and its resulting data more than 100 years ago. He also predicted many features of modern mass spectrometry. He discovered the electron using mass spectrometry and won the Nobel Prize in 1906 for his research.

The Thomson Medal Award is sponsored by the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation (IMSF), and the first awards were made in 1985
