From Chirality to Complexes, Mass Spectrometry and Structural Biology

Mass spectrometry continues to emerge as an analytical tool in many aspects of structural biology. Results from quantitative analysis of secondary and tertiary structural shifts as a result of chiral substitution, hydrogen scrambling in ECD vs. CID and de-convolution of the pre-initiation complex (PIC) using chemical crosslinking, electron microscopy and computational modeling will be demonstrated.

Chris Adams is the Director of proteomics at the Stanford University Mass Spectrometry (SUMS) Laboratory. SUMS supports both Stanford researchers as well as other academic and industrial research. Chris is responsible for oversight of the proteomic laboratory including instrumentation, sample preparation and data analysis. Chris received his PhD from Uppsala University, Sweden within the department of biological and medical mass spectrometry under the guidance of Professor Roman Zubarev. Prior to graduate school Chris worked at various research positions with Amgen and Baxter Biosciences. His undergraduate work was done in biochemistry at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He is a Southern California native and in his free time enjoys outdoor activities with his wife, daughter and dog that include boating and snow skiing.
