The CASMI advisory board
This contest is not about winning, but is all about advancing the identification of small molecules from mass spectral data. To help this goal, CASMI is supported by its advisory board:
  • Lloyd Sumner (Noble Foundation) works on the development, advancement, and application of leading-edge instrumental techniques for the large-scale profiling and identification of the functional products of gene expression, namely proteins and metabolites.
  • Vladimir Likic (Melbourne, Australia) has worked in various areas of bioinformatics since 1991. His interests include mass spectrometry signal processing, metabolic networks, and metabolic flux analysis in microbial pathogens. He is the founding Editor-in-Chief of 'Metabolites', and led bioinformatics activities of in Metabolomics Australia (a national service centre for metabolomics) from 2007-2011 .
  • Susan D. Richardson (EPA, Ecosystems Research) focuses on the identification of new disinfection by-products (DBPs) in drinking water, determining formation mechanisms, and integrating toxicological characterization with chemical characterization approaches.
  • Sandra Perez Solsona (Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research, CSIC, Barcelona, Spain) concentrates her research efforts on the fate and toxicity of emerging pollutants, their metabolites and transformation products in the aquatic environment.
