Past Recipients of the Gilbert S. Omenn Computational Proteomics Award
Gilbert S. Omenn Computational Proteomics Award
This award recognizes the essential nature of computational methodology and software in proteomics. Specifically, this award acknowledges the specific achievements of scientists that have developed bioinformatics, computational, statistical methods and/or software used by the proteomics community, broadly defined. The award is named in honor of Gil Omenn, a US HUPO Past President, leader of the Human Proteome Project, and influential proteomics researcher. Nominations well be held for three years.
Nomination submissions are now closed!
2022 RECIPIENT: Eric Deutsch, Institute for Systems Biology
Dr. Eric Deutsch obtained his Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the University of Washington, and then moved to the Institute for Systems Biology where he is now a Principal Scientist focusing on Computational Proteomics. He currently leads the team that develops the Trans-Proteomic Pipeline (TPP), an open-source suite of software tools for processing proteomics mass spectrometry data. He also leads the team that develops PeptideAtlas, a resource that gathers publicly deposited proteomics data from around the world, reprocesses the data with the TPP, and provides the results as ensemble views of the observed proteome for many different species. Dr. Deutsch contributes to the development of minimum information standards and standardized data formats as co-chair of the HUPO Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI) and chair of its mass spectrometry standards working group, which has produced such standards as mzML and the Universal Spectrum Identifier (USI). He is one of the leaders of the ProteomeXchange Consortium of proteomics repositories that aims to promote data sharing in the community. He is also chair of the HUPO Human Proteome Project (HPP) Knowledge Base Pillar and a member of the HPP Executive Committee and Biology/Disease focused HPP Executive Committee.
