Joseph ZaiaProfessor of Biochemistry at Boston University
Dr. Joseph Zaia, Ph. D. serves as Professor of Biochemistry, Member of the Bioinformatics Program, and Associate Director of the Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry (CBMS) at Boston University. His research concerns biochemistry of glycoproteins, proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans. He has developed an approach for rigorous comparison of glycoprotein among sample sets that combines liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and bioinformatics. He has used these methods to study biochemistry of extracellular matrices, including tissue specific regulation of glycosylation. Dr. Zaia collaborates widely with investigators regarding roles of proteoglycan and glycoprotein expression in human diseases.
