Liangliang Sun is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry. Dr. Sun’s research focuses on development of novel analytical methodologies for high resolution, ultrasensitive and native proteomics.
Dr. Sun earned his Ph.D. from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Science. He completed his postdoctoral training at the University of Notre Dame, where he also held a position as a Research Assistant Professor prior to joining MSU.
The Sun Lab uses orthogonal separation techniques to improve the separation of peptides and intact proteins in complex proteomes, boosting the proteome coverage from proteomics. Dr. Sun’s lab integrates microscale RPLC (µRPLC) with CZE-MS/MS to improve the sensitivity of proteomics, enabling deep proteomics of mass-limited samples. This group collaborates with developmental biologists to apply their techniques for understanding important biological questions.
