The Power of Mass Spectrometry Imaging

NC State is celebrating the twelfth year in a row for the renewal of its competitive grant towards the continuation of the development and application of a novel Mass Spectrometry Imaging platform (MSI).

MSI is a technique used for mapping the spatial distributions of molecular species across a sample. It is a versatile technology that is used for a wide range of applications including clinical diagnostics and pathology, food science, forensics, natural products, pharmaceutical R&D, plant sciences, spatial lipidomics, metabolomics, and whole-body analyses.

This 4-year $2.2 million NIH grant was recently awarded to support a collaborative effort initiated by the College of Sciences, College of Engineering, and METRIC at NC State and the College of Engineering at Duke University.

Professor David Muddiman, in collaboration with NC State researchers Emily Hector, Seth Kullman, Mark Pankow, Whitney Stutts, and Duke University researcher Tatiana Segura, is working hard to develop and apply this novel MSI platform to address universal health concerns such as Vitamin D deficiency, stroke, and wound healing.

Our cutting-edge, solution-driven research, technology, and scholarship result in new ideas, products, and services.
