Mass Spectrometry (Fan Liu)

Research Interests

Nearly every process in the living world is based on proteins. To precisely execute this plethora of tasks, proteins are highly organized in a variety of assemblies, ranging from stable protein complexes, to well-regulated pathways, to extended protein interaction. Perturbation of these well-balanced systems is linked to many physiological and pathological conditions.

Our group is interested in developing and applying tools to characterize the complexity of protein interactions within the cell. Using state-of-the-art mass spectrometric technologies, in particular cross-linking mass spectrometry (XL-MS), we aim to chart the protein interactomes of complex biological systems. This allows us to visualize how proteins are spatially organized and dynamically regulated in vivo, which is fundamental to the understanding of the molecular physiology of the cell.
