The Amster Lab

In the Amster lab we use mass spectrometry to solve difficult problems in bioanalytical chemistry. Our group focuses on Fourier transform mass spectrometry, and the development and application of MS techniques to analyze a class of carbohydrates, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). We have been investigating GAGs for over ten years, and we also look at protein-GAG interactions. Other interests include gas-phase structural biology, top-down proteomics, and metabolomics.
