Nadia Sargaeva

Nadia graduated in 2012. She currently works for Perkin Elmer.

Nadia’s thesis work focused on the study of protein post-translational modifications (PTMs) using tandem MS methods involving ion-electron and ion-ion interactions and similar techniques in high resolving power mass spectrometers such as a Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer (FT-ICR-MS).  She was particularly interested in the identification of isoaspartic acid (isoAsp) resulting from either asparagine (Asn) deamidation or aspartic acid (Asp) isomerization.
