Analytical Chemistry

Anayltical Division

About Analytical Chemistry

Research in the division of analytical chemistry is highly multidisciplinary and includes bioanalytical chemistry, mass spectrometry and other separation methods, sensing and imaging, spectroscopy and plasmonics, nanofabrication and microfludics, protein film electrochemistry, and proteomics and metabolomics. Projects focus on developing novel and effective devices and methodologies for sensitive disease biomarker detection, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, metabolic toxicity screening, and quantum dot investigations. Research of division members is funded by major grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and other sources. Research efforts feature a wide variety of national and international collaborators in areas such as biochemistry, cancer biology, engineering, nanomaterials science, pharmacology and medicine. Graduate students in the division often spend training and research periods in collaborators' laboratories in the U.S. and abroad, as well as in industry as interns.
