Catherine Fenselau, Ph.D.
Professor, Dept. of Chemistry & Biochemistry, University of Maryland.

My research focuses on the applications of mass spectrometry in biomedical research, including middle-out and top-down proteomics, analysis of branched proteins and exosomes and their proteomes. I have utilized Shimadzu MALDIs for many of these applications, as well as for microorganism identification.

Alex J. Rai, PhD, DABCC, FACB
Associate Professor of Clinical Pathology;
Director, Specialty Laboratory;
Chief Scientific Officer, Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine


My work aims to identify new biomarkers and to then develop laboratory assays that can be used in the clinical management of cancer patients. I am currently using the Perfinity Workstation in my lab to investigate heterogeneity in exosomal populations from clinical samples, as well as to develop new immuno-capture workflows to characterize clinically relevant serum proteins.

Kevin A. Schug, Ph.D.
Shimadzu Distinguished Professor of Analytical Chemistry at The University of Texas at Arlington

My research is focused on the theory and application of separation science and mass spectrometry. I currently use many Shimadzu GC, LC, and MS platforms to solve a variety of life science, analytical, and physical chemistry problems. Shimadzu manufactures quality products and their excellent service support keeps everything running smoothly.

Richard B. van Breemen, Ph.D.
Matthias C Lu Collegiate Professor of Pharmacy, and Professor of Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy at the University of Illinois College at Chicago

My research concerns the investigation of the safety, mechanisms of action and efficacy of botanical dietary supplements as well as MS-based discovery of natural products for chemoprevention. I use mass spectrometry in all aspects of these studies including natural product structure elucidation, metabolism, pharmacokinetics, and clinical trials. My laboratory is equipped with Shimadzu UHPLC, triple quadrupole and IT-Tof mass spectrometers.
