Dr. Liangliang Sun is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Michigan State University (East Lansing, Michigan, USA). He received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (Dalian, China) in 2011. Then he worked with Prof. Norman Dovichi as a postdoctoral fellow and later as a research assistant professor from 2011 to 2016 at the University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, Indiana, USA). He joined Michigan State University as an Assistant Professor in 2016. He has 12-years’ experiences on proteomics and has published 84 peer-reviewed papers with over 1700 citations.
Dr. Sun’s research group at MSU aims to develop novel analytical methodologies based on capillary zone electrophoresis-tandem mass spectrometry (CZE-MS/MS) for comprehensive and highly sensitive bottom-up and top-down proteomics. His research group applies those methodologies for quantitative proteomics of zebrafish embryos and blastomeres during early embryogenesis to achieve the dynamics of gene expression and protein post-translational modifications (PTMs) during early embryogenesis at high time resolution and single-cell resolution.
