John R. Evans Leaders Fund Awarded to the Phillips lab for plant metabolism research

I was recently named a John R. Evans Leaders Fund recipient and awarded $140,000 to fund infrastructure for my plant metabolomics platform.

The title of the project is "Control and adaptive responses of the plant metabolome".

This award will go towards the purchase of a triple quad - ion trap mass spectrometer, a versatile instrument that will be the centerpiece of the whole plant, isotopic labeling studies that make up the core of my research program.

Thanks to the UTM Department of Biology for their assistance in preparing my application and to Denise Durie in the UTM Procurement office for her help in navigating the public bid process to acquire this instrument.
