Dr. Isailovic's Research

Dr. Isailovic’s research group has worked on independent and collaborative projects related to qualitative, quantitative, and imaging analyses of biomolecules and potential biomarkers in purified samples, in biological cells and tissues, and on the surfaces of nanoparticles. The following is a list of recent research topics studied by his group using primarily mass spectrometry (MS), fluorescence spectroscopy, and various imaging (microscopy, MS imaging) and separation (gel electrophoresis, HPLC and IMS) methodologies:

· Analyses of  proteins, glycans, and lipids by MS

· Proteomic analyses of human saliva 

· Quantification of microcystins by LC-MS

· Visible-wavelength MALDI-MS of biomolecules

· MALDI-MS imaging of proteins in tissues

· Quantification of proteins by fluorescence detection and MS

· Multimodal spectral imaging of biomolecules in cells

· Investigation of energy transfer involving fluorescent proteins
