Presented by Joshua Sharp, PhD
Dr. Joshua Sharp is a world-renowned and internationally recognized expert in Hydroxyl Radical Protein Footprinting (HRPF), pioneering some of the early work in studying protein structure and interactions. He has over twenty-one peer-reviewed articles and has presented numerous invited lectures on biopharmaceutical HRPF. Along with acting as the Chief Technology Officer of GenNext, Dr. Sharp is also Associate Professor of Pharmacology, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Director of the Glycoscience Center of Research Excellence at the University of Mississippi. Dr. Sharp is active in the development and application of new mass spectrometry-based technologzies for studying the structure-function relationships of proteins and carbohydrates, focusing on the study of interactions between neutralizing antibodies and the glycoprotein coat of HIV, characterization of chemokines and the structural factors mediating their oligomerization and function, and the identification of glycosaminoglycan structures.
