Witold M. Winnik
Witold M. Winnik received the Ph.D. degree in organic and analytical chemistry from Cleveland State University in 1994. From 1994 to 1997, he was a National Research Council postdoctoral Fellow at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in Las Vegas. In 1997, he accepted a Research Assistant Professor position at New York University, Nelson Institute of Environmental Medicine, School of Medicine in Tuxedo, NY, USA. His involvement in mass spectrometry and chromatographic analyses, which started at the Ph.D. level, was intensified during the postdoctoral research and the academic appointment at NYU, during which he served as the Director of the analytical chemistry shared resource. A move to the private sector took place in 1999, when he accepted a position in the major mass spectrometry company ThermoFinnigan Inc., in Piscataway and Somerset, NJ, as a Lead Chemist. It was from this position that he moved to North Carolina in 2003 to join the US EPA, National Health Effects and Environmental Research Laboratory (NHEERL) Environmental Carcinogenesis Division as a Principal Investigator working in proteomics studying differential protein expression. In 2009, he became the Team Leader of the Proteomics Research Core in NHEERL, US EPA. He is active within the American Society for Mass Spectrometry and has been participating in various national meetings of several scientific societies: Experimental Biology (EB), Environmental Mutagen Society (EMS), Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF), and Genetics and Environmental Mutagenesis Society (GEMS). He served as a GEMS Council Member from 2004 to 2005.
