报告题目：Translational Proteomics: from lab research to clinical diagnosis
报告人：Prof. Weiguo Andy Tao, Ph.D.
Prof. Weiguo Andy Tao leads an active research group focusing on new developments in proteome analyses using systems biology approaches. For the past several years, a number of novel proteomic strategies and techniques have been developed in his research group to analyze proteins and their modifications involved in specific biological functions. Current research projects include the identification of protein biomarkers for early onset of diseases from biofluids, dissecting multiple signaling pathways in endocytosis and exocytosis, and chemical proteomics to identify intracellular drug targets and virus receptors.
Tao received his mass spectrometry training through his dissertation work on gasphase chiral analysis in the Aston Lab at Purdue University, headed by Dr. R. Graham Cooks. After receiving his Ph.D. in December 2001, he became a Damon Runyon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute for Systems Biology at Seattle, under the supervision of Drs. Leroy Hood and Ruedi Aebersold. He started his own research group in the Department of Biochemistry at Purdue University in 2005, and currently is Professor in ranking. He also has courtesy appointments in the Department of Chemistry, Department of Medicinal Chemistry & Molecular Pharmacology, and Purdue Center for Cancer Research.
