Thermo Fisher Teams with Princeton Researchers on Mass Spec Methods

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Thermo Fisher Scientific today announced a technology alliance partnership with researches from Princeton University to accelerate research in triple quadrupole and high-resolution accurate mass liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry for life science applications.

Under the terms of the agreement, the company and Princeton scientists will collaborate on research, sample sharing, and data sharing. In addition to resulting in better methodologies, the collaboration may lead to exchanging ideas to improve instrument and software performance, ongoing discussions about technology issues, and publication of new methods and scientific advances, Thermo Fisher said.

The partnership focuses on three research areas: metabolomics in the laboratory of Joshua Rabinowitz, a professor of chemistry at the Lewis Sigler Institute at Princeton; proteomics integrated with molecular biology and infectious diseases within the lab of Ileana Cristea, an assistant professor of molecular biology; and mass spec and proteomics methods development with David Perlman at the Princeton Mass Spectrometry and Synthesizing/Sequencing Facility.
