Professor Robinson credited her research group and colleagues, and said, “these are very much team awards - with contribution from many great group members, colleagues, and collaborators”. 

She has been awarded the prestigious 2022 Louis-Jeantet Prizes for Medicine for establishing mass spectrometry as a rigorous method to analyse the composition of protein complexes, and their interactions with small molecules. 

The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, U.S A is honouring 13 people for achievement in science and business. The Benjamin Franklin Institute medal in Chemistry  is to be awarded to Professor Robinson at a ceremony in May 2022. The award recognises her work in developing techniques for analysing interactions of biological molecules such as proteins and lipids, thus elucidating their biological functions and assisting in pharmaceutical discovery.
