2022 - Tim Garrett, PhD University of Florida College of Medicine
Dr. Garrett has over 20 years of experience in the field of mass spectrometry spanning both instrument and application development. He received his PhD from the University of Florida, under Dr. Richard A. Yost, working on the first imaging mass spectrometry-based ion trap instrument. He has also developed MALDI-based approaches to analyze proteins in bacteria and small molecules in tissue specimens. His current interests include the translation of LC-HRMS, MALDI, DESI and LMJSSP in metabolomics to clinical diagnostics. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology at the University of Florida, and an Associate Director for the Southeast Center for Integrated Metabolomics (SECIM).
2022 - Kara Lynch, PhD, DABCC University of California San Francisco
Dr. Kara Lynch is a Professor of Laboratory Medicine at the University of California San Francisco, Co-Director of the Core Laboratory at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Chemistry Director at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. She is the co-director of the COMACC-accredited Clinical Chemistry Fellowship Program at UCSF. Her laboratory conducts studies aimed at identifying and quantifying endogenous and exogenous small molecules in biological specimens using novel diagnostic technologies, such as high resolution mass spectrometry, ion mobility mass spectrometry, ambient ionization mass spectrometry and biolayer interferometry. Her lab is involved in translational research studies evaluating the clinical utility of novel biomarkers or biomarker panels to diagnosis, treat and monitor disease. The methods developed in her laboratory are used to investigate perturbations in metabolic pathways caused by disease and drug use and translate the results into information that can be used in clinical practice.
2016 - 2022 Alan Rockwood, PhD, DABCC University of Utah, School of Medicine
Alan Rockwood, PhD, DABCC is Professor (Clinical) Emeritus of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Originally trained in Physical Chemistry, he performed research on the fundamentals of mass spectrometry and instrumentation development before focusing his career on Clinical Chemistry. He is certified by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry and has held a Certificate of Qualification in Clinical Chemistry from the New York State Board of Health. Currently, his primary area of research is the development of mass spectrometry-based quantitative assays for targeted analytes of clinical interest, including small molecules and more recently proteins and peptides. Additionally, he maintains a smaller research effort on fundamentals of mass spectrometry, particularly novel approaches for isotopic profile calculations. He has published >150 papers in peer reviewed journals.
2016 - 2020 Prof. Dr. med. Michael Vogeser University Hospital, LMU Munich
Dr. Michael Vogeser, MD, is specialist in Laboratory Medicine and senior physician at the Hospital of the University of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany (LMU; Institute of Laboratory Medicine). As an Associate Professor he is teaching Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine. The main scope of his scientific work is the application of mass spectrometric technologies in routine clinical laboratory testing as translational diagnostics. Besides method development in therapeutic drug monitoring and endocrinology a further particular field of his work is quality and risk management in mass spectrometry and in clinical testing in general. Michael has published >200 articles in peer reviewed medical journals. Michael heads the Commission for In Vitro Diagnostics in the German Association of Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF).)
