Vivero lab published in Journal of Materials Chemistry B

   November 25, 2019

Chronic liver dysfunction often begins with hepatic fibrosis. A pivotal event in the progression of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis is hepatic stellate cell (HSC) activation and secretion of extracellular matrix proteins, including tenascin-C (TnC). TnC is often chosen as a therapeutic target for treatment of liver disease. TnC is minimally detected in healthy...

Dr. Cooper Published in Analytical Chemsitry

   October 29, 2019

Dr. Cooper recently published an article in Analytical Chemistry:

Tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) can be used to identify metabolites in biological samples by searching against a library of spectra obtained from known compounds. But the best match from a library search is guaranteed to be incorrect if the unknown is not (yet) in any library. This paper presents a novel "hybrid"...
