Research interests

Jun Qu’s research is focused on the study of Clinical and Pharmaceutical Proteomics and Pharmaceutical Analysis using LC/MS-based strategies. His research programs include i) highly sensitive and accurate characterization of biotherapeutics in pharmaceutical and clinical systems using LC-MS; ii) high-resolution and large-scale expression profiling of pathological proteomes, for the discovery of novel disease/therapeutics biomarkers using MS1-based proteomic methods (IonStar). iii) Sensitive identification, localization and quantification of post-translational modifications in tissue proteomes, using novel anti-PTM affinity capture and alternating CID/ETD to obtain abundant PTM information; iv) targeted investigation of marker proteins that are of high interests for clinical and pharmaceutical study. His group is one of the current world leaders in LC-MS-based study of biotherapeutics in pre-clinical models, as well as MS1-based, large-cohort quantitative proteomics. He has >120 peer reviewed publications and >60 grants funded as PI or co-I.
