Tim Tim (Zhihui) Wen
Senior Programmer Analyst

Interests:
My interests are focused on methods development in qualitative and quantitative LC-MS/MS analyses. With MSc degrees and bench work experience in the fields of analytical chemistry and computer science, when I joined Stowers Proteomics Center, I took the role of providing a high speed cross-platform software solution for LC-MS/MS data processing.

Ying Ying Zhang
Senior Research Specialist

Interests:
After I obtained my Ph. D. in Analytical Chemistry, I have worked in different analytical fields involving various separation techniques and chromatography detection methods. Since 2003, my research interests have been focused on different models of high performance liquid chromatography and different types of mass spectrometers as detector. At the Stowers Institute Proteomics Center, in addition to collaborating with other research groups, I have been developing methods for quantitative proteomics analysis, such as optimization of high accuracy mass spectrometer settings, phosphopeptides enrichment, and new MS/MS fragmentation methods coupled with MudPIT.
