The efforts of the Dodds Research Group lie in the fields of analytical chemistry and biological chemistry, with emphasis on the central role of mass spectrometry at the intersection of these disciplines. We work to develop and apply state-of-the-art mass spectrometry methods for the elucidation biomolecular structure and assembly, with specific areas of focus including the study of protein glycosylation and the analysis of non-covalent biomolecular assemblies.
Our primary research tool is a Waters Synapt G2 HDMS. This instrument affords us a unique combination of analytical capabilities, including high resolution, accurate mass measurement over a wide mass range; tandem mass spectrometry using collision-induced dissociation and electron transfer dissociation; and ion mobility separation and collisional cross section measurement. In concert, these technologies allow us to address demanding questions in the bioanalytical, biochemical, and biomedical sciences while also advancing mass spectrometry methodology by expanding our knowledge of gas-phase ion structures and dissociation processes as they relate to bioanalysis.
