In its January 4, 2010 issue, Chemical & Engineering News recognized Catherine E. Costello, a Georgetown Chemistry Ph.D. alumna, as a 2010 American Chemical Society Award Winner for receiving the Frank H. Field & Joe L. Franklin Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mass Spectrometry.
According to C&E News, Costello, a professor of chemistry, biochemistry, and biophysics at the Boston University School of Medicine, “has advanced the application of mass spectrometry to biomolecules, especially carbohydrates and glycoproteins [for nearly 40 years].”
At the Fall ACS national meeting, Costello will present the award address at the Division of Analyitical Chemistry.
In 1970, Costello received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Georgetown University under the mentorship of Prof. Charles F. Hammer. Her thesis is titled “Electrophilic brominations of poly-substituted olefins; reactions and NMR studies.”
