Research Interests
The Bartlett Laboratory focuses on the development and validation of novel analytical methodologies to address important biomedical issues related to the adsorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination of therapeutic agents. The laboratory is currently investigating two important areas. 1) Understanding the mechanisms underlying the transport and distribution of therapeutic agents across membrane barriers such as the placenta and the blood brain barrier. 2) Quantitation of macromolecules. The increased use of biotechnology-based therapies has created a demand for quantitative methods to assay these agents from biological samples. Our work focuses on using mass spectrometry in conjunction with liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis to isolate and measure therapeutic proteins and oligonucleotides with high precision and accuracy.
