Date:9/1/2009

MILFORD, Mass., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) announced today that the Analytical Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society presented Prof. John R. Engen of Northeastern University with the Arthur Findeis Award for Achievements by a Young Analytical Scientist. Through a collaboration with Waters Corporation, Prof. Engen has pioneered the combined use of hydrogen-deuterium (H/D) exchange technology, UltraPerformance LC(R) and ion mobility mass spectrometry to better understand the conformation, or the folded three-dimensionality, of proteins that are thought to play a major role in some diseases. Prof. Engen received his award at a ceremony at the ACS National Meeting in Washington on August 16.

By being able to form a better three-dimensional picture of these proteins and how they move and react with other proteins, scientists are able to better understand the relationship between protein function and protein structure and, it is hoped, gain new perspectives on how diseases begin and progress. Prof. Engen is an Associate Professor of Chemistry & Chemical Biology and a Faculty Fellow at Northeastern University's Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis.

Proteins are carefully structured, three-dimensional, long-chain molecules that when properly folded regulate normal bodily functions. Several high profile diseases including Alzheimer's, Creuzfeldt-Jakob's, and Parkinson's can de
