Dr. Jace W. Jones is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Associate Director of the Mass Spectrometry Center at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.
We develop mass spectrometry-based platforms that couple biomarker discovery to quantitative validation. We accomplish our research goals via the use of chromatography, ion mobility, and mass spectrometry to structurally elucidate and quantify biologically active lipids to further understand disease/injury mechanism of action and provide novel insight for drug development targets.
I received my Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Washington where I did my thesis research under the supervision of František Tureček. The focus of my thesis was developing gas-phase ion chemistry strategies to gain structural insight into peptides and glycolipids. I then further developed tandem mass spectrometry platforms for structural elucidation of bacterial glycolipids in the laboratory of David R. Goodlett at the University of Washington, School of Pharmacy. At this time, I moved to industry and was the Technical Director at an Analytical Laboratory (Jones Environmental, Inc.) in Fullerton, CA. I made my way back to academic research as a research scientist followed by research assistant professor in the laboratory of Maureen A. Kane at the University of Maryland, School of Pharmacy.
