Proteomics Biomarker Development
My work at PNNL focuses on developing and applying innovative methods and technologies that enable high-throughput, sensitive, and quantitative liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS) based multi-omic measurements of complex biological and clinical samples. I have extensive experience in stable isotope and isobaric labeling, enrichment of protein post-translational modifications (PTMs), unbiased and targeted proteomics, and single-cell proteomics, towards in-depth, robust and integrated omics characterization of cells, tissues and biofluids to discover and validate specific changes at protein, PTM and pathway levels in cancer and other diseases.
