Catherine Costello came to Boston University in 1994. That year she established the Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry, which has become an internationally recognized research center. She holds her primary appointment in the MED Biochemistry Department, with secondary appointments in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics and the Department of Chemistry. Her research, which focuses on determining the structures and functions of biologically important polymers, has revolutionized an important area of biochemistry by providing insights into the structures of molecules responsible for human disease. She is the author or co-author of more than 300 scientific papers, serves on a number of editorial boards of major journals, and has received numerous awards and honors, including the 2010 Field and Franklin Award from the American Chemical Society, one of the highest honors in her field.
