Executive Committee (June 2019 – June 2021)

  • President:Liang Li

    Professor Liang Li, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

    Dr. Li obtained his BSc in Chemistry from Zhejiang (Hangzhou) University in 1983 and his PhD from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan and joined the University of Alberta in July 1989, where he is Professor of Chemistry and Adjunct Professor of Biochemistry. He is

    an elected fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (Academy of Science) (2019). He is a Co-Director of the Metabolomics Innovation Centre (TMIC) of Canada since 2019. Dr. Li was Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Analytical Chemistry from 2005 to 2019. He served as Director, Alberta Cancer Board Proteomics Resource Laboratory, from 2000 to 2005. He was Chair of Analytical Chemistry Division at the University of Alberta from 2007 to 2019. He was a Co-PI of the Human Metabolome Database (HMDB) Project; his laboratory generated the HMDB MS/MS spectral library of the endogenous human metabolites which has been widely used by the metabolomics community. His laboratory is a pioneer in developing the high-performance chemical isotope labeling liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (HP-CIL LC-MS) platform for quantitative and comprehensive metabolome profiling of bio-systems. Dr. Li has received a number of national and international awards and honors. He is an editor of Analytica Chimica Acta, an international journal on analytical chemistry, since 2005. He is also a member of the editorial advisory board in a number of scientific journals.

  • President-elect:Lan Huang

    Lan Huang is Professor of Physiology & Biophysics in School of Medicine, University of California, Irvine. Her research focuses on developing novel, integrated mass spectrometry-based proteomic strategies to characterize dynamic proteomes of macromolecular protein complexes

    and understand their functions, particularly those in the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Through the years, the Huang lab has developed various novel methodologies to capture, purify and quantify protein-protein interactions of protein complexes in living cells. In addition, her lab has developed a new class of cross-linking reagents, i.e. sulfoxide-containing MS-cleavable cross-linkers (e.g. DSSO), and thus established a robust cross-linking mass spectrometry (XL-MS) platform enabling fast and accurate identification of cross-linked peptides. These XL-MS strategies have been successfully employed to determine protein interaction interfaces and derive structural topologies of protein complexes in vitro and in vivo. The strategies developed by her group have proven highly effective as general proteomic tools for studying protein complexes. She has co-authored more than 120 peer-reviewed research articles. She has served on multiple committees for professional societies including ASMS, ASBMB, US HUPO and CASMS organizations. She has been an Ad hoc reviewer for many journals and funding agencies, and currently serves on NIH study section. She has served as co-organizers for numerous international conferences including US HUPO annual meeting (2015 and 2020), ASMS Sanibel meeting (2019), and Gordon conferences (2015 & 2017). She has been an Editorial Board member of Molecular & Cellular Proteomics since 2007 and an Associate Editor for FASEB BioAdvances since 2019.

  • Immediate Past President:Andy TAO

    Weiguo Andy Tao, Ph.D., Former President (2017-2019)
    Professor in Biochemistry and Chemistry, Purdue University

    Prof. W. Andy Tao leads an active research group focusing on new developments in proteome analyses using systems biology approaches. He received his mass spectrometry training through his dissertation work on gas-phase chiral analysis in the Aston Lab at Purdue University,

    headed by Dr. R. Graham Cooks. After receiving his Ph.D. in December 2001, he became a Damon Runyon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute for Systems Biology at Seattle, under the supervision of Drs. Leroy Hood and Ruedi Aebersold. He started his own research group in the Department of Biochemistry at Purdue University in 2005, and currently is Professor in ranking. He also has joined appointments in the Department of Chemistry, Department of Medicinal Chemistry & Molecular Pharmacology, Purdue University, Southeast University (SEU), Nanjing, and Shanghai Institute of Stress Biology, Chinese Academy of Science (CAS).

  • Vice President:Naidong Weng

    Dr. Weng is Scientific Director, Janssen Fellow, and Head of Bioanalytical Chemistry and Pharmacokinetics, Discovery Sciences, Janssen Research & Development, Johnson and Johnson, Spring House, PA, USA. Currently he supervises a department which has end to end responsibilities

    for LC-MS bioanalysis (discovery and development). The research interests of his group include LC-MS bioanalysis of drug candidates, metabolites, biomarkers, conjugated proteins/peptides, oligonucleotides, and more recently metabolomics. Dr. Weng has over 110 peer-reviewed journal publications and book chapters. He co-edited two books on bioanalysis (Eliminating bottlenecks for efficient bioanalysis: practices and applications in drug discovery and development, 2014; Targeted biomarker quantitation by LC-MS, 2017) and one Special Focus Issue of Bioanalysis on Bioanalytical Laboratory Structure and Management (2014). He has been teaching short courses on DMPK at ASMS since 2011. He is the current US regional editor for Biomedical Chromatography (Wiley).
