"Mass Spectrometry of Biotherapeutics – Developments in Dextran MS Analysis and Identification of Interferences in Metabolic Assays"

Wednesday January 17th, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Research seminar abstract The use of materials for biomedical applications must be evaluated for their physiological benefits, but also for their degradation byproducts and potential interferences. The focus of this presentation will relate to the measurement of dextran and the identification of interfering species in common metabolic assays using mass spectrometry. Dextran is a glucose-derived […]

"Improved Ionization of Natural Organic Matter for Analysis by FTICRMS"

Thursday February 1st, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Natural organic matter (NOM) is an extremely complex mixture comprised of a collection of plant, animal, and microbial byproducts at various stages of decomposition. In addition to being one of the largest contributors to the terrestrial carbon pool, the molecular composition of NOM is of extreme interest due to its involvement in key processes that […]

"Evaluation of Sliding Strip Microfluidic Paper-Based Analytical Device (PAD) for Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostics"

Thursday February 1st, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assays (ELISA) are a conventional disease diagnostic approach. ELISA is frequently used to detect clinically relevant proteins, antibodies and small molecules. Typically, the assay is comprised of the antigen of interest, immobilized to a surface, that is complexed with an antibody which is then linked to an enzyme and lastly introduced to […]

Chad Borges Presents:

"Albumin Oxidizability as a Forensic Marker of Blood Plasma/Serum Exposure to Thawed Conditions"

"Life in a Dead Ocean: Linking bacterial biomarkers to elemental analysis in the Permian – Triassic (PT) Extinction Event"

Wednesday February 14th, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Literature seminar abstract A particular time frame of interest to geochemists is the period from the Late Permian to the Early Triassic, as that time frame includes the End-Permian extinction event that occurred around 252 million years ago, the largest known mass extinction event in earth’s history. However, the exact cause of this extinction is […]

"Analyzing Oncolytic Virus Activity in Live Cells"

Wednesday February 14th, 2018 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Literature seminar abstract Oncolytic viruses were first approved in the 1980’s as a treatment for cancer. Since then, various researchers have been engineering these viruses for increased effectiveness against tumor cells. Testing these viruses presents unique challenges, as measurements must be made in terms of the host’s response. The most common method for quantifying and […]
