Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, School of Pharmacy, University of Maryland, United States
Lisa M. Jones is an associate professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Maryland. She received her PhD in Chemistry from Georgia State University. She was a postdoctoral associate in the lab of Michael L. Gross at Washington University in St. Louis. Her research interests include the use of the protein footprinting method fast photochemical oxidation of proteins (FPOP) coupled with mass spectrometry for the characterization of the higher order structure of proteins. In particular, her lab has further developed FPOP for in-cell (IC-FPOP) studies for proteome-wide structural biology. Biological applications of IC-FPOP include characterizing protein folding intermediates directly in the cell and drug target engagement. The Jones lab has also extended the method for in vivo analysis (IV-FPOP) in C. elegans for studying protein structure in an animal model for human disease.
