Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometry Lab
Modern Instrumental Biochemistry requires high performance instrumentation. In particular, the field of proteomics largely exists because of advances in high performance mass spectrometry instrumentation.
The Fourier transform mass spectrometer is the highest performance instrumentation currently available to those interested in structural characterization of proteins and other biomolecules. The FTMS lab is devoted to developing instrumentation and methods that improve the everyday utility of FTMS instrumentation on samples of biochemical interest.
Current research projects:
Electron Activated Dissociation of Glycans
Characterization of Protein Palmitoylation
Trapped Ion Mobility Spectrometry
Fundamentals of Electron Capture Dissociation
Past research projects:
High Throughput MALDI-FTMS development
High Pressure MALDI-FTMS development
