Professor Frank Pullen

3rd Sep 2021

It is with the greatest sadness that I announce the passing of Professor Frank Pullen on 2nd September 2021.

Frank, a much loved mass spectrometrist, has taught and inspired so many of us through his time in industry and academia.

Frank has always been a big part of the BMSS community. He regularly attending meetings, presenting his research countless times and judging the Barber and Bordoli prizes. Frank also helped shape our Society while serving as committee member, Vice Chair and Chair of our Society before supporting us as a member of the BMSS Advisory Board. In 2010 Frank went On Tour on behalf of the BMSS as the BMSS lecturer, visiting 14 different venues to share his knowledge and spread his enthusiasm for mass spectrometry.

Such is his contribution to UK mass spectrometry, Frank was awarded the BMSS Medal in 2014.

Our condolences and thoughts go to Franks wife Lynn and family at this time.

Dr Jackie Mosely, Chair
