Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr. Jessica R. Bame has 15 years of experience in applying mass spectrometry, chromatography and NMR to a wide variety of analytical applications. She worked in collaboration with RTI International and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for 4 years in natural product drug discovery, isolating and identitying a previous unknown efflux pump inhibitor against S. aureus in Alkanna Orientalis. She moved to the Georgia Institute of Technology working with the CDC and international partners to further develop MS/MS detection methodologies for sphingolipids in mouse/human tissue samples. She obtained her PhD at the University of Bristol focusing in NMR, developing techniques for quantitative distance determination via NOE. With this wide variety of skills, she worked for 3 years at the University of Glasgow under Professor Leroy Cronin as part of a project team developing a metric for chemical space complexity quantification via NMR, IR and Mass Spectrometry to be used by international space agencies. In addition, she co-managed a 600 MHz NMR for a highly discipline diverse team of 70 researchers, performing experimental optimisation and development to assisting team in approach to analytical research. Now she is a co-manager of the PAC Mass Spectrometry Facility at the University of Strathclyde along with a lecturer of 3rd year undergraduate students in mass spectrometry theory and applications.
