Joe is at the forefront of GAG MS analysis and also has lots of experience with N- and other O-linked sugar analysis. He’s been developing a technology which allows him to carry out combined analysis of GAGs, N-linked sugars, proteins (by ESI-MS) and potentially RNA (by qPCR) on tiny samples of tissue either using tissue arrays (using a printer to deliver solvents/enzymes for each separate analysis) or for laser-capture isolated samples.
His combined approach works really well for biomarker identification/validation. This is very much a new area – the ability to combine ‘omics’ approaches is still very novel and Joe is really pushing new technique development in the field.
