This PhD project will use laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry to quantitatively image the distribution of endogenous elements and proteins via a metal proxy in muscle tissue. You will develop methods to cross-validate your results using other techniques such as LC-MS or more standard biological assays. You will use your validated method to investigate protein-protein interactions in muscle tissue during aging.
