Lisa Kilpatrick

Dr. Lisa Ervin Kilpatrick began working in the Chemical and Biochemical Reference Data Division of NIST in 2004. Her work involves collecting high quality tandem mass spectra of peptides using a linear ion trap mass spectrometer. The peptide spectra, also being collected by NIST in Gaithersburg, MD, are being used to build a reference library for the reliable identification of peptides from complex mixtures.

Dr. Kilpatrick received a Ph. D. in biochemistry from Northern Illinois University and worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Medical University of South Carolina for two years. During her post-doctoral fellowship, Dr. Kilpatrick identified post-translational modifications of lens membrane protein modifications related to aging and cataract formation using techniques including LC-MS/MS, MALDI-TOF and MALDI-TOF/TOF. Prior work experience at Abbott Laboratories involved analysis of drug candidates with FAB mass spectrometry.
