Protein Folding & Interactions Studied by Mass Spectrometry

presented by

Carol Robinson
Oxford University

July 30, 1998

The Scripps Research Institute, W.M. Keck Foundation Amphitheater


Background:

Dr. Carol Robinson received an MSc working with Professor J.H. Beynon on fundamental aspects of gas phase ions before going on to work in the laboratory of Professor D.H. Williams at the University of Cambridge. In Dudley Williams laboratory she worked on peptide sequencing of extracts from bovine spinal cord using fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry. In 1992 she joined the Oxford Centre for Molecular Sciences, initially as a member of the core staff, collaborating with research workers in the centre. In 1995 she was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship to establish her own group. Her research interests include the application of mass spectrometry to protein folding and the role of accessory proteins in this process; the study of non-covalent interactions either protein-ligand or protein-protein; and the structural changes involved in amyloid fibril formation.
