Prof. Proteomics and Glycomics


I am enthusiastic about unleashing the power of high-end techniques, in particular mass spectrometry (MS), for unraveling the molecular processes of life. I have a background in the analysis of proteins and their carbohydrate modifications (glycans). Glycans are key determinants in many events of multicellular life, are implicated in the etiology of many diseases, and are factors determining the efficacy and safety of many protein-based drugs, and I have dedicated my scientific career to unraveling their structure, regulation and function.
