Research in this group involves ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS), a powerful technique that provides two separate dimensions of chemical separations information for improving confidence in identification and quantitation in metabolomics, lipidomics, and proteomics. Our projects range from instrument development to biological/clinical applications to fundamental studies of gas-phase chemistry and structure.
The ACS National Meeting was held in Orlando from March 31-April 4, and the Chouinard group had quite a presence! Kristie, Robbie, and Sam presented a poster on their lipidomics work and Prof. Chouinard presented talks during the Ion Mobility symposium and Advances in Mass Spectrometry sessions. Can't wait for the next conference!
The students present their poster "Ion mobility-mass spectrometry and ozone-induced dissociation (OzID) methods for improved lipidomics analysis" during the Analytical Poster Session. Pictured (L-R): Robert Fraser-Caris, Kristie Baker, Prof. Chouinard, Sam Maddox
Robbie and Kristie got to meet Meg-A-Mole and Professor Mole!
The Chouinard Group's new Agilent 6560 Ion Mobility QTOF instrument is now installed and ready for experiments!
