Event Series: Analytical Chemistry Seminar Series
Analytical Chemistry Seminar Series: Rebecca Whelan (University of Kansas)
February 17 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
About the Speaker:
B.A. in Chemistry and English, Lawrence University, 1996
Ph.D. in Chemistry, Stanford University, 2003
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Bioanalytical Chemistry, University of Michigan, 2003–2004
- Bioanalytical chemistry
- Capillary separations
- Mass spectrometry
- Cancer biomarkers
- Affinity assays and reagents
Achieving improved clinical outcomes for cancer patients will require discovery of new biological markers and improved understanding of biomarkers already in use. To this end, the Whelan lab employs diverse analytical methods including proteomics, microscale separations, bioinformatics, and affinity reagent development.
