Research in our laboratory is focused on the development of novel chemistries and next-generation bioanalytical mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation to better understand the molecular basis of health and disease. In particular, we use imaging mass spectrometry (IMS) to enable the visualization of biochemical processes directly in tissue specimens by combining the molecular specificity of mass spectrometry with microscopic imaging capabilities. The significance of this work lies in its application, in collaboration with biologists and clinicians, to the study of tissue samples. Leveraging novel chemical analysis strategies, we aim to understand the molecular events associated with important problems in human health, including cancer, infectious disease, and diabetes.
