2021 Recipient: Brian Chait, The Rockefeller University
Brian T. Chait was born in Cape Town, South Africa. He received his B. Sc. (1969) and B. Sc. (Hons) (1970) from the University of Cape Town and D.Phil. (1976) in experimental nuclear physics from Oxford University. For the past 42 years he has worked at The Rockefeller University in New York, where he is Camille and Henry Dreyfus Professor and Head of the Laboratory of Mass Spectrometry and Gaseous Ion Chemistry, and where he led until recently the NIH-funded National Resource for the Mass Spectrometric Analysis of Biological Macromolecules. Professor Chait has received several awards for his group’s research in developing instrumentation and methods for characterizing proteins, including the 2002 ACS Field & Franklin Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mass Spectrometry, the 2007 HUPO Distinguished Discovery Award in Proteomics, and the 2015 ASMS Award for a Distinguished Contribution in Mass Spectrometry. He and his group have also been awarded 31 US patents, several of which have been commercialized and are widely used throughout the world.
