Danielle Faivre - graduate student
Danielle joined the Genome Sciences department as a graduate student in September 2017 and became part of the MacCoss lab in June 2018. Since joining the MacCoss lab, Danielle has focused on energetics-based proteomics approaches for studying protein aggregation in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid. She is very excited for this project because of its relevance to neurodegenerative diseases. In May 2017, Danielle graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a B.S. in Biochemistry. Her undergraduate research involved method development for capillary electrophoresis-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (CE-ESI-MS) and using CE-ESI-MS to analyze the developmental metabolome of Xenopus laevis.
Deanna Plubell - graduate student
Deanna is a third-year PhD student interested in better understanding the role of proteolytic processing in
Neurodegenerative disease. More specifically she is interested in determining ways we can better utilize quantitative mass spec data to detect differential proteoforms. Additionally, she has worked to improve selection of peptide candidates for targeted assay development. Before joining the MacCoss lab, Deanna worked at Oregon Health & Science University where she used both discovery and targeted mass spec methods to investigate changes in adipose tissue and lipoprotein proteomes in cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
