Jennifer Van Eyk, PhD, director of the Advanced Clinical Biosystems Research Institute within the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai has been honored by two nationwide organizations for her excellence and management within the discipline of biomedicine: the USA Human Proteome Group (US HUPO) and Northeastern College’s Barnett Institute.
For greater than 25 years, Van Eyk’s work has targeted on scientific proteomics, the research of the construction and performance of proteins throughout the physique. Her analysis is also aimed toward understanding how illness alters proteins in another way in girls with coronary heart illness than males with coronary heart illness.
“My crew’s mission is to maneuver our discoveries via the science pipeline and into the fingers of clinicians to create higher outcomes for sufferers,” stated Van Eyk, the Erika J. Glazer Chair in Ladies’s Coronary heart Well being at Cedars-Sinai. “It’s an honor to have our work acknowledged by these prestigious organizations.”
The proteomics group awarded Van Eyk the Catherine E. Costello Award for Exemplary Achievements in Proteomics, which acknowledges a researcher who has made vital discoveries and completed scientific achievements. Van Eyk can be honored on the group’s annual convention in Portland, Oregon, in March.
Van Eyk additionally has been awarded the biennial Karger Medal from the Barnett Institute at Northeastern College for her excellent achievements in bioanalytical chemistry.
“Dr. Van Eyk is a world chief on this discipline,” stated Eduardo Marbán, MD, PhD, government director of the Smidt Coronary heart Institute. “The discoveries popping out of her lab are altering the face of medication. She richly deserves each recognition for her excellent work.”
Throughout 2023, Van Eyk’s work has acquired an abundance of honors. Earlier this 12 months, Van Eyk additionally was acknowledged with the Distinguished Contribution Award from the Affiliation for Mass Spectrometry and Advances within the Medical Lab, the President’s Distinguished Lecture Award from the Worldwide Society for Coronary heart Analysis, and a spot on the 2023 Ten Years of Impression Energy Record by The Analytical Scientist. Most not too long ago, her analysis lab was included on first woman Jill Biden’s tour of Cedars-Sinai girls’s well being analysis.
