Research in the Smith Lab is broadly focused on the development of technologies to enable the observation of proteoforms that are invisible to current techniques. We approach this both from the lab bench and the computer keyboard. We develop innovative lab methods to advance current proteomic analyses, and open new avenues of proteomics research. We also develop cutting-edge software tools for the accurate and efficient analysis of mass spectrometry proteomics data.
Specific Research Areas
Concurrent development of software to more quickly, accurately, and deeply characterize the proteome, and improvement of our ability to visualize proteomics data in highly informative ways.
