Research Summary
Proteomics in Systems Biology, Medical Therapeutics and Medical Aetiology

Cellular systems offer an unparalleled ability to control, manipulate and experiment with complex living systems. We address the influence of diversity (protein form and/or function), quantity (abundance), space (subcellular spatial distribution) and time (dynamic responses) at the cellular level using high throughput, quantitative mass spectrometry based proteomics. Our current applications include several areas of investigation in cancer and the genetic theory of viral infection:

A) Complex, dynamic spatial organization of subcellular biology in relationship to the energetic/integrative functions of mitochondria, nuclear-mitochondrial coordination and the nature of their role in cancer and other diseases.

B) The complexity of form and subcellular distribution of proteins and pathways that relate the cell cycle and metabolic status of cancer cells.

C) Proteomics methods for detection/analysis of functional networks across human populations with genetic variability in determining susceptibility to, consequences of and potential diagnostic/therapeutic approaches in viral infections.
