My experience and interest are in the development and application of mass spectrometry technology in biomedicine. I have designed and developed instrumentation for more than 20 years. Since my postdoctoral training, I have focused more on the application of this technology to the solution of complex biomedical problems. I have contributed to large collaborative projects that research diabetes, AIDS, general cancer mechanisms, specific cancers (e.g., pancreatic and bladder), and immunology. I have also worked with small groups on method development. In the Fall of 2012, I helped establish the MS Resource metabolomics initiative. I’m repsonsible for organizing and facilitating the Midwest Mass Spectrometry Discussion Group because the dissemination of technological advancements and research progress accelerates the pace of discovery.
Recent progress has brought us to the point where MS can begin to make contributions in structural biology, including the interaction of lipids and proteins, aggregating proteins, and intrinsically disordered proteins. These areas will require working together with biologists and doctors to focus the continued development of technology on answering biomedical questions.
