Gizem Keceli, PhDGizem Keceli, PhD
2015 -

My projects include investigating chemical strategies to detect sulfenic acid formation in complex biological systems, and studying the effects of redox-related thiol modifications on the structure of Akt2 using biochemical procedures and mass spectrometry techniques.


Robert WielandRobert Wieland
MMTS Graduate Student
2015 -

My research focuses on the structural and functional consequences of Akt2 oxidation and their relation to reactive oxygen species associated diseases such as cancer and diabetes.



 Hanzhi Wu, PhDHanzhi Wu, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow 

My research focuses on applications of mass spectrometry to investigate regulation of signaling, metabolism and epigenetics in a broad range of diseases.



Jade MimsJade Mims
Graduate student in the MMTS Ph.D. graduate program.

My project focuses on understanding the underlying mechanisms associated with resistance to radiation and drug targeted therapies phenotypes in HNSCC cells to identify new targets for inhibition, to overcome resistance to current therapies and to identify clinical biomarkers of response to therapies.


Xiaofei ChenXiaofei Chen
Postdoctoral Fellow

My current research interests are twofold. One is to define radiation response signatures in a matched model of radiation resistance for HNSCC and investigate the molecular mechanisms that lead to resistance to radiation. The other is to determine the role of EGFR signaling in the development of Chlamydia trachomatis and the relationship between chlamydial infection and cancer (head and neck and breast cancer).
