March 2013: Prof. Konermann honored with the 2013 Ken Standing Award
It gives us great pleasure to announce that Professor Lars Konermann has been awarded the 2013 Ken Standing Award. The Ken Standing Award is presented by the sponsors of the Enabling Technologies (ETP) Symposium to honor a young scientist who has made a significant contribution to technology development in support of research in the life sciences. The award honors the career of Ken Standing, Professor Emeritus at the University of Manitoba, who was a major figure in the development of time-of-flight mass spectrometry for bioanalytical applications.
The ETP Symposium was initiated as part of a Genome Canada project sponsored by MDS Sciex, Genome Alberta and Genome Prairie. Its major theme was to have world-renown scientists present papers on their experiences with novel technologies that have, or will have a major influence on research in the life sciences. The popularity of the original two symposia led to the creation of a not-for-profit entity, ETP Symposium Inc., who now is responsible for organizing the symposium on a biennial basis. The theme remains the same: alerting scientists in the life sciences to advances in new technology that could have a significant impact on their research activities.
Please join us in congratulating Lars on this accomplishment!
