  • Mass spectrometry to interrogate biological problems
  • Retinoid (vitamin A) metabolism and active metabolite (retinoic acid) signaling
  • Biomarker discovery, quantification, and validation
  • Mass spectrometry imaging
  • Bioanalysis for pharmacokinetic (PK) studies
  • Quantitative mass spectrometry assay development and validation
  • Collaborations pertaining to metabolism, metabolite signaling, lipid profiling and lipid signaling, biomarkers, drugs and drug metabolites
