ASMS 2024: An Interview with Elizabeth Neumann of the University of California, Davis

News
Article

During ASMS 2024, which will take place June 2–6, 2024 in Anaheim, California, many scientists are set to present research on the latest advances in mass spectrometry. Recently, LCGC International sat down with Elizabeth Neumann of the University of California, Davis to discuss her presentation, "Multi-Site Reproducibility Trial of MALDI-IHC Multiplexed Targeted Protein Imaging using a 33-Organ Tissue Microarray."

Elizabeth Neumann is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Davis. She has been a NIH Postdoctoral Fellow at Vanderbilt University, a NSF Doctoral Fellow at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and she has earned a BS in Chemistry from Baylor University (1). Her lab joined the UC Davis Chemistry Department in the summer of 2022 and focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular architecture behind neurological diseases. The research is highly interdisciplinary and involves developing analytical tools and multimodal imaging methods for understanding complex biological phenomena.

In this interview, Neumann answers the following questions:

  • What can you tell us about your ASMS study?
  • Can you provide examples of what makes intact protein spatial analysis by MS so important of a process?
  • Can the process help in research beyond cancer and neurological manners? How impactful has it been in those two fields?
  • How important is method reproducibility to this process?
  • Were there any unexpected discoveries that were made during this experiment?
  • What does the next phase of your research look like?
  • What are you most looking forward to at this year’s ASMS conference?
