Sam Thomas is pursuing a PhD in Molecular and Environmental Toxicology. He is interested in the impact of environmental endocrine disruptors like phthalates on prostate diseases, both benign and neoplastic. We are looking for biomarkers of disease and disruption via mass spectrometric techniques in a number of different sample matrices: human cell culture, mouse models, human patient samples (urine, biopsy cores, tissue microarrays, etc.). These projects rely on global shotgun proteomics as well as targeted and global metabolomic strategies.
