CLAIRE E. EYERS, BSC, PHD, FRSC – BIOSKETCH
Claire Eyers is a Professor of Biological Mass Spectrometry in the Institute of Systems, Molecular & Integrative Biology at the University of Liverpool (UoL), Director of the Centre for Proteome Research (CPR), and Associate Pro Vice Chancellor (Research & Impact) for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.
Having obtained a PhD (2002) in Biochemistry from the University of Dundee (Prof. Sir P. Cohen), she undertook postdoctoral studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder (Prof. N. Ahn) and then in the Michael Barber Centre for Mass Spectrometry, University of Manchester (Prof. S. Gaskell), where she became Acting Director (2009–2013). Her research exploits biophysical and biochemical methodologies to understand the structure and relevance of post-translational modifications (PTMs) and their roles in regulating cellular signalling in health and disease. She has established expertise in the development of mass spectrometric (MS)-based methods, and exploits separation technologies, including ion mobility spectrometry (IMS), for the structural investigation of proteins and the effects of PTMs and ligand binding.
