Dr. Michael Bartlett and Dr. Mandi Murph publish drug development paper

Dr. Michael Bartlett, PBS professor and director of CoP’s B.S. program, and Dr. Mandi Murph, PBS associate professor, published “The role of fluorinated alcohols as mobile phase modifiers for LC-MS analysis of oligonucleotides.” Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, 28, 190-199 (2017). This is a research paper with collaborators from ProQR in the Netherlands, which explores ways to improve LC-MS based methods for the determination of oligonucleotides by accelerating oligonucleotide therapeutic drug development (ProQR interest) and endogenous microRNA biomarker discovery (Murph interest).
