MCP to host proteomics session
The editorial leadership team of the journal Molecular & Cellular Proteomics has chosen three investigators to present their current research during a symposium at the 2020 American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Annual Meeting in San Diego.
"These are mid-career scientists leading and gaining penetrating discoveries of the workings of biological systems through the tools of molecular proteomics,” said Al Burlingame, MCP editor-in-chief and chair of the session.
The session, titled “Exciting Biological Insights Revealed by Proteomics,” will be held at 3:15 p.m. on Monday, April 6.
Anne-Claude Gingras is a senior investigator at the Lunenfeld–Tenenbaum Research Institute in Toronto. Her group employs mass spectrometry and a proximity-dependent biotinylation technique called BioID to study protein–protein interaction and spatial localization.
Matthias Selbach is a professor at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Germany. His group uses mass spectrometry–based quantitative proteomics to investigate proteome dynamics and cellular signaling on a global scale.Benjamin Garcia is a presidential professor of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of Pennsylvania. His group studies histone post-translational modifications and systems epigenetics using novel methodologies in mass spectrometry.
