Proteomics; differential protein expression and protein/peptide mass spectrometry.

Research Description

Proteomics is the study of the dynamic protein expression of a tissue, cell type or organism. As an Associate Director of the Proteomics Laboratory in the Mass Spectrometry Research Center from 2001-2012, I directed research and technology that targets differential protein expression upon various experimental treatments/conditions (2-dimensional difference gel electrophoresis; 2D DIGE), protein identification using tandem mass spectrometry from proteins isolated from polyacrylamide gels or in complex mixtures, characterize and map sites of protein post-translational modification using tandem mass spectrometry, and quantify relative protein abundance by selected/multiple reaction monitoring tandem mass spectrometry.
