Infusion-Based Lipidomics: The Good, The Bad, and the Isobaric Overlap

The Michigan Regional Comprehensive Metabolomics Resource Core (MRC2) invites you to its second seminar of 2015. Dr. Jeffrey McDonald, Associate Professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, will present "Infusion-Based Lipidomics: The Good, The Bad, and the Isobaric Overlap."

Jeff McDonald is an Associate Professor at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX. Jeff has spent the last 10 years at UT Southwestern as director of mass spectrometry for the LIPID MAPS sterol core where he developed state-of-the-art LC-MS based methods for the analysis of sterols and oxysterols in biological samples. In collaboration with AB Sciex and Phil Sanders at Eli Lilly, Jeff has spent the last two years focusing his research towards infusion-based lipidomics using advanced mass spectrometry techniques and applying these methods to helping unravel complex biological questions. Jeff received his B.S. in chemistry from Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO and a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from Indiana University in the lab of Ron Hites. He completed a postdoctral fellowship with the FBI in their forensic research labs and was a research chemist there prior to joining the faculty at UT Southwestern.
