Quantitative analysis of biomolecules offers a wealth of clues to understand cell biology and disease mechanisms. Mass spectrometry (MS) has become a central technology to study biomolecules such as proteins, peptides, lipids, and metabolites. Our research focuses on developing novel and improved bioanalytical methods using LC-MS platforms and applying the combination of analytical chemistry, bioinformatics, and cell biology approaches to study human diseases. Specifically, 1) we develop novel proteomics and metabolomics strategies in complex biological samples; 2) we implement multidisciplinary approaches in the human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons, mouse models, and clinical human subjects to study the molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases.
