Neubert Lab

We use mass spectrometry to gather data about proteins and their roles in cellular signaling events.

Led by Thomas A. Neubert, PhD, the main focus of our lab is the development and use of mass spectrometric methods for the study of proteins and their roles in cellular signaling events. While great strides in understanding intracellular signal transduction have been made in recent years by using molecular biological techniques, we feel that a more complete understanding of the dynamics of intracellular decision-making processes can be gained by studying the proteins directly. During the last few years, we have also used mass spectrometry to study lipids and small molecules.

We use mass spectrometry as the main tool for our studies because of the wide variety of information about protein structure it can provide while requiring only small amounts of protein for analysis. We believe that the most efficient use of our technology is achieved by collaborating with outstanding molecular neuroscientists through the NYU Mass Spectrometry Core for Neuroscience.
