Probing the Molecules of Life
Dr Peter Nemes is fascinated by the societal impacts of technology and its pivotal role in driving scientific discoveries. An associate professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland, his research drives innovation in bioanalytical instruments and their applications.
These next-generation mass spectrometry (MS) technologies are capable of measuring molecules that have important implications in developing biological systems. They can be utilized to study single cells or even whole embryos, helping us to understand the complex molecular systems that underpin cell and neurodevelopmental biology, cell fate and disease.
