Proteomics
Jennifer E. Hobbs, PhD Jennifer E. Hobbs, PhD

It has been previously demonstrated that chromosomal aberrations drive brain tumor development. Dr. Hobbs is interested in utilizing proteomic techniques to investigate specific protein changes that impact chromatin remodeling and gene regulation in brain tumors.

Dr. Hobbs is collaborating with the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute and the Northwestern University Chemistry of Life Processes Institute with the goal of using cutting edge mass spectrometry techniques to identify key protein modifications that are essential in disease initiation and progression.

In addition, Dr. Hobbs is working on a collaborative project within the Department of Neurological Surgery to examine how specific proteins normally involved in coagulation can alternatively participate in glioblastoma progression.
