Research in the Orlando lab involves the application of state-of-the-art
mass spectrometric techniques to analyze, identify, and characterize
proteins and protein post-translational modifications.
Work in the Orlando lab is currently focused on the development of mass spectrometry based
techniques for: (1) the high throughput analysis of glycoproteins and
carbohydrates from complex biological samples, (2) the structural
characterization of complex biologically active glycoproteins and
protein carbohydrate interactions, (3) analyzing protein expression in
the Chagas' disease causing parasite Trypanosoma cruzi.
Researchers in Dr. Orlando's' lab actively collaborate with other investigators to help
them formulate research strategies in proteomics and glycomics.
