Facility Director

Where to find me

Office location:

Pharmacy/Biology Building, Room 531

Lab location:

Proteomics & Metabolomics Facility: Pharmacy/Biology Building, Room 513

Research background

Jeremy has over 15 years of mass spectrometry-based research experience.  After receiving a B.S. in chemistry from Messiah College in Grantham, PA, he pursued a Ph.D. in bioanalytical chemistry from the University of Virginia under the direction of Donald F. Hunt, a pioneer in the proteomics field.  Following completion of his dissertation titled "Studies in Protein Post-Translational Modification using CAD and ETD Mass Spectrometry" and graduation from UVA, he joined Natalie Ahn's laboratory at the University of Colorado at Boulder for a post-doctoral research appointment focused on applying Hydrogen-Deuterium Exchange Mass Spectrometry and additional biochemical analysis to study the relationship between structure and function in various enzymes.

Jeremy served the University of Colorado at Boulder Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry as Director of the Central Analytical Laboratory and Mass Spectrometry Core Facility from 2014 - early 2017 before joining the research community at UConn.

As a member of the Center for Open Research Resources & Equipment, it is Jeremy's goal to bring his expertise and state-of-the-art mass spectrometry-based technologies to the University of Connecticut, UConn Health, and the Connecticut public and private research communities at large.  Contact Jeremy directly for more information on beginning your future project.

Jen Liddle, Ph.D.

Facility Scientist

Where to find me

Office location:

Pharmacy/Biology Room 513

Lab location:

Proteomics & Metabolomics Laboratory: Pharmacy/Biology Building, Room 513

Research background

Jen has over 10 years of coast-to-coast mass spectrometry research experience. She was first introduced to MS instrumentation at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA, where she completed a B.S. in Biochemistry. She subsequently joined Natalie Ahn's lab at University of Colorado Boulder, where she received her Ph.D. in Biochemistry, using hydrogen-deuterium exchange mass spectrometry to study the activation and allosteric regulation of MAP kinases. She then accepted a joint postdoctoral position with the Weitzman lab at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Garcia lab at University of Pennsylvania, applying proteomics to study the effects of viruses on protein interactomes, histone modifications, and ubiquitin signaling.

As a member of the Center for Open Research Resources & Equipment, it is Jen's goal to provide a creative, customized partnership between the diverse needs of the Connecticut research community and the analytical capabilities available in UConn PMF.
