The Annual Meeting and Programs Committee

  • Chair:Yinsheng Wang

    Dr. Wang is a Distinguished Professor in the Chemistry Department of the University of California Riverside. The current interests of his research group encompass the development and applications of mass spectrometric methods for studying modified nucleic acids as well as

    nucleotide- and nucleic acid-binding proteins.

  • Member:Lan Huang(Past-Chair)

    Lan Huang is Professor of Physiology & Biophysics in School of Medicine, University of California, Irvine. Her research focuses on developing novel, integrated mass spectrometry-based proteomic strategies to characterize dynamic proteomes of macromolecular protein complexes and

    understand their functions, particularly those in the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Through the years, the Huang lab has developed various novel methodologies to capture, purify and quantify protein-protein interactions of protein complexes in living cells. In addition, her lab has developed a new class of cross-linking reagents, i.e. sulfoxide-containing MS-cleavable cross-linkers (e.g. DSSO), and thus established a robust cross-linking mass spectrometry (XL-MS) platform enabling fast and accurate identification of cross-linked peptides. These XL-MS strategies have been successfully employed to determine protein interaction interfaces and derive structural topologies of protein complexes in vitro and in vivo. The strategies developed by her group have proven highly effective as general proteomic tools for studying protein complexes. She has co-authored more than 120 peer-reviewed research articles. She has served on multiple committees for professional societies including ASMS, ASBMB, US HUPO and CASMS organizations. She has been an Ad hoc reviewer for many journals and funding agencies, and currently serves on NIH study section. She has served as co-organizers for numerous international conferences including US HUPO annual meeting (2015 and 2020), ASMS Sanibel meeting (2019), and Gordon conferences (2015 & 2017). She has been an Editorial Board member of Molecular & Cellular Proteomics since 2007 and an Associate Editor for FASEB BioAdvances since 2019.

  • Member:Yue Chen

    Dr. Yue Chen is an Assistant Professor in Biochemistry at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. He earned his Ph.D. in Analytical Biochemistry in 2009 and did postdoctoral research in proteomics under the guidance of Dr. Yingming Zhao. During his graduate study and

    postdoctoral research, he developed an unrestrictive sequence alignment analysis to identify novel and unexpected protein modifications in mass spectrometry analysis. His work contributed to the discovery of a family of short-chain lysine acylations including propionylation, butyrylation, succinylation, crotonylation, malonylation, hydroxybutyrylation and so on. He joined the faculty at the University of Minnesota in 2013 with main research interests in developing novel strategies for global and quantitative analysis of posttranslational modification pathways involved in protein homeostasis and cellular metabolic signaling. His recent effort focuses on characterizing novel oxygen-sensing protein modification pathways and developing mass spectrometry-based tools for absolute quantification of modification prevalence.

  • Member:Zhibo Yang

    Dr. Yang obtained his B.S. in Geochemistry (1997) and an M.S. degree in Physical Chemistry (2000) from the University of Science and Technology of China. In 2005, he received his Ph.D. degree at Wayne State University. He conducted postdoctoral research at Pacific Northwest

    National Laboratory (2005–2008) and the University of Colorado, Boulder (2008–2012). He then started his independent career (Assistant Professor and Associate Professor) at the University of Oklahoma (2012-current). Dr. Yang’s current research is focused on the development and application of novel microscale mass spectrometry techniques to study single cells, tissue imaging, and multicellular tumor spheroids. He is also interested in multivariate data analysis, machine learning, computational chemistry, and fundamental ion chemistry. Dr. Yang has published more than 70 peer-reviewed journal papers and given over 60 podium presentations. He serves as a reviewer for more than 25 journals and a variety of funding agencies. Dr. Yang also services on the Annual Meeting and Programs Committee of CASMS. Dr. Yang has received a number of awards, including the ASMS (American Society for Mass Spectrometry) Research Award in 2014.
