I want to thank everyone for the many responses provided on this survey on
mass spectrometry. The feedbacks have been fantastic, and they have helped
me greatly to evaluate how mass spectrometry could better research and
training in cell/developmental biology. This will be an important component
of my proposal. Thank you again for the support.

If you have not yet filled out the form (see link below), the poll is still
open until this Friday (July 1). It only takes <2 minutes, and any
information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  Your response

With best wishes,

Mass Spectrometry Survey (Dr. Peter Nemes, petern at gwu.edu)

Hello - I am conducting this 2-minute survey as part of a proposal to
identify how mass spectrometry (MS) could be better streamlined for
biological studies. MS is the technology of choice for measuring known and
unknown proteins, peptides, and metabolites in analytical chemistry. For
example, my laboratory has recently advanced MS sensitivity to uncover
proteomic (Refs. 1, 2) and metabolomic (Refs. 3, 4) cell heterogeneity in
early developing embryos of Xenopus laevis. MS offers new, exciting
potentials to advance also basic and applied research in the life sciences.

With your help, I am hopeful to identify where current technical-training
limitations are in MS, and how this technology could find mainstream
applications also in your research. I am grateful to any suggestions you
can offer. Thank you! ~Peter Nemes (George Washington University,
