Role in MaHPIC
Director, Metabolomics Team
This project applies new high-resolution metabolic profiling capabilities that I developed in collaboration with Tianwei Yu, to develop new strategies for fighting malaria. I am trained in medical biochemistry and have several years of experience in predictive health and personalized medicine research. Additionally, I have an extensive research career in physiological chemistry and metabolism, including clinical research and established collaborations in primate research and infectious disease. I have an active independent NIH-funded research program in redox biology and clinical metabolomics. I regularly participate in national and international meetings and have been active in both theoretical and practical development of new approaches to use high-resolution mass spectrometry and systems biology in predicting risk and improving therapeutics on personalized medicine.
