Robert Murphy, PhD

University of Colorado
Molecular Profiling

Dr. Murphy has worked in the area of mass spectrometry and eicosanoid biochemistry for approximately 40 years with much of his research activities centered around the use of mass spectrometry to studies of arachidonic acid biochemistry and formation of the biologically active leukotriene mediators. His present research program focuses on details of transcellular biosynthesis of leukotrienes, the formation of biologically active lipid products from exposure of ozone to the lung, the advancement of mass spectrometry in the area of neutral lipid analysis, and the imaging of complex lipids in tissues. He served as President of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry and is on the editorial boards of numerous scientific journals in biochemistry and mass spectrometry.
