Monthly Publication Highlight - Dr. Andy Tao
October 2017 - The Purdue College of Pharmacy is pleased to honor and recognize the outstanding research and scholarship generated by our faculty each month. This month we highlight Dr. W. Andy Tao, Professor (courtesy appointment, Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology). Dr. Tao’s recent publication, “Identification of Upstream Kinases by Fluorescence Complementation Mass Spectrometry”, can be read in ACS Central Science (September 13, 2017; DOI: 10.1021/ acscentsci.7b00261). The study was conducted in collaboration with Drs. Chang-Deng Hu and Robert Geahlen of the Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, as well as Dr. Lingfei Zeng, former MCMP graduate student. Dr. Tao and his team have developed a new kinase detection method that helps identify targets for developing cancer drugs. You may read more here.
