Professional Interests

Proteomics provides an unbiased window on the workings of the cell, and can provide cues to functional protein complexes, biomarkers and potential therapeutic targets.  My research focus has been on analytical chemistry approaches to understand important biological questions. My background spanned experimental biology and embryology and chemistry, which proved important as the sophistication of analytical technologies developed, and translational studies became possible.
