With a PhD in Analytical Chemistry, and experience in MS based methods (LC/GC/ICP) I work on developmenting/validating methods in complex matrices to determine the emergence of contaminants, and to monitor/regulate contaminants in wastewater, composting plants, drinking water and regulatory agencies.
Dr. Paula Meleady
National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology
I am interested in the proteomic and phosphoproteomic analysis of recombinant mammalian cells to improve biopharmaceuticals. This involves genetically engineering cells to produce recombinant protein products more efficiently. I also perform research into the proteomic analysis of membrane proteins from cancers to identify cell surface targets that may be amenable to therapeutic intervention.
