Ljiljana Paša-Tolic, better known as Lili, is EMSL's mass spectroscopy capability lead. With a scientific focus in biology, she is particularly interested in the biological applications of mass spectroscopy technology.
Paša-Tolic's primary research area is proteomics – the study of proteins, particularly their structures and functions. Most proteomics research is from bottom up, which means the proteins are broken up and analyzed using liquid chromatography coupled withmass spectroscopy. Bottom up proteomics gives researchers a broad look at the proteins present in the sample, but does not identify the diversity of the protein forms, or proteoforms.
