Hummon receives Fulbright Award to the Netherlands

Amanda Hummon, associate professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award to the Netherlands.

Hummon will be teaching a graduate course in proteomics at Maastricht University. She will also be conducting imaging mass spectrometry research on patient-derived organoids in the Maastricht MultiModal Molecular Imaging Institute (M4I) January – May 2021.

“The M4I is the world’s leader in imaging mass spectrometry of patient-derived organoids,” stated Hummon. “Organoids are cell cultures grown from patient samples and they have developed successful protocols to analyze these important, but complicated, samples. My laboratory also works on patient-derived organoids to help determine individualized patient responses to drugs, so we will be able to incorporate their protocols into our workflow.”
