The lectureship is awarded every three years to someone who has made significant contributions to research involving mass spectrometry. During the three year tenure of the award, Jane will deliver around ten lectures at conferences, departmental seminars and to the general public, highlighting different aspects of the subject as exemplified by her work.
Professor Thomas-Oates’ research focuses on the structural analysis of biologically-active molecules. Using mass spectrometric methods, her work is characterising systems as diverse as biomolecules from archaeological samples, the metabolism of arsenic-containing compounds, and the signal molecules involved in nitrogen fixing plants.
