Assistant Professor at University of Arizona
Dr. Marty completed his PhD training as a Springborn Fellow under the guidance of Stephan Sligar at UIUC. In 2013, he began his postdoctoral research with Carol Robinson at the University of Oxford. There, he developed UniDec software for deconvolution of mass and ion mobility spectra. Applying UniDec with high-resolution Orbitrap mass spectrometry, he discovered that membrane proteins ejected from Nanodiscs retained a full annular belt of bound lipids. He joined the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Arizona in 2016. The Marty lab focuses on the characterization of membrane proteins and antimicrobial peptides by mass spectrometry. His lab works at the interface of chemistry and biochemistry, combining cutting-edge analytical methodologies with biotechnology.
