Dr. Sharp’s group is active in the development and application of new mass spectrometry-based technologies for studying the structure-function relationships of proteins and carbohydrates of biomedical interest. Current applications focus on the study of interactions between neutralizing antibodies and the glycoprotein coat of HIV; characterization of chemokines and the structural factors mediating their oligomerization and function; and the identification of glycosaminoglycan structures with potential biomedical applications for a wide variety of fields including anti-microbial agents, anti-cancer therapies, and anti-inflammatory therapies.
