He trained at Harvard University as a Kirchstein honorary Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Fellow where he participated in the development of protein microarray approaches for mapping human protein interaction networks in breast cancer.

Does your protein analysis toolbox need a refresh? Do you have a firm grasp on the tools available and when each might best be employed in your daily research activities?
High quality proteins are critical for contemporary biomedical research. Biochemists and biophysicists require high quality proteins to probe the molecular mechanisms of proteins in their native state. Proteomics researchers, cell biologists, and pathologists require high-quality antibodies as purification tools and as diagnostic reagents. Formulation scientists need to quickly gain an understanding of the impact that buffer and other components have on the structure and function of protein biologics.
In this webinar, several complementary protein analysis tools will be introduced and discussed including chromatography, UV/VIS spectroscopy, light scattering, electrophoresis, western blotting and analytical ultracentrifugation. In closing, I will discuss our work in measuring the pairwise interaction matrices of hundreds of ErbB signaling proteins and peptides to illustrate the importance of quality control in obtaining high quality protein interaction data.
