Research Activities and Interests:
Bioanalytical chemistry and bioinformatics.
Dr. Zimmerman based his doctoral thesis on the neuroproteomics of thin brain sections using mass spectrometry imaging, software development, and bioinformatics. His additional experience includes work with liquid chromatography, Fourier-transform mass spectrometry, and forensics. His ongoing work at NIST focuses on quantitation of clinically-relevant proteins and mass spectral library searching. He has authored about a dozen peer-reviewed publications in both Europe and the United States.
