Abstract:Presented by: Kevin Tucker – Assistant Professor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Co-authors: Katherine A. Maloof, Alexis N. Reinders Abstract: Over the last five years, mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) has made it possible to extract spatially relevant information from numerous types of sample mediums including biofilms, biota, and environmental solids. Newer approaches to MSI including desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (MS) and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma MS have been adapted to imaging, enabling less sample preparation than previous ionization methods and drastically improving the ability to analyze environmental samples. MSI has broadened its scope to accommodate for metabolomic and toxicologic data to be collected in qualitative and quantitative formats. This presentation will dissect numerous MS techniques and newly designed methods for analyzing environmental samples using MS imaging to produce more diverse environmental sample sets. Biography: Dr. Kevin Tucker received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011. Dr. Tucker’s research lies at the nexus of food, energy, and water. We focus on the detection of both legacy and emerging pollutants within local and regional waterways and the surrounding soil systems including agricultural fields as well as modeling laboratory exposure in model organisms. Dr. Tucker also focuses on method development in mass spectrometry to improve environmental science measurements.
