Organ-Specific NRF2-Mediated Protein Signatures of Radiation Exposure & Tissue Damage.

PI: Julian Whitelegge
07/01/12 – 06/30/18
This project seeks to discover/validate biomarkers of radiation exposure and organ-specific damage in mice. MPI with William McBride (Radiation Oncology) and Joseph Loo (Chemistry & Biochemistry)


Microfluidics for High-Throughput HDX-MS.

PI: Julian Whitelegge
07/01/12 – 05/31/16

Proteomic approaches to protein fatty acylation.

NIH/NCRR R21RR023132
PI: Julian Whitelegge
08/15/09 – 7/31/11
The work will define technology for enrichment, purification and mass spectrometry of fatty acylated peptides from complex biological samples.

Subtle Modification of Isotope Ratio Proteomics, an Integrated Strategy for Expression Proteomics

NIH/NCRR R21RR021913
PI: Julian Whitelegge
03/22/08 – 02/28/11
