Joseph Zaia

Neuer InhaltJoseph Zaia, Ph. D., serves as Professor of Biochemistry, Member of the Bioinformatics Program, Faculty in the Molecular and Translational Medicine Program, and Associate Director of the Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry (CBMS) at Boston University. Before joining Boston University in 1999, he worked at Osiris Therapeutics, on the molecular basis of connective tissue diseases.  His research group focusses on glycomics and glycoproteomics of viruses and neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases. His group developed mass spectrometry-based methods for characterization of glycosaminoglycans and applied these to collaborative biomedical studies.  His group developed a workflow for enzymatic release of glycan classes using sequential enzymatic digestion from tissue slides.  Using these methods, they routinely analyze four glycan classes plus proteins from a tissue slide. They have developed mass spectrometry and bioinformatics methods for measuring site-specific glycosylation in influenza A proteins. They are now able to define viral protein glycosylation and the changes that occur as the virus mutates seasonally. His group developed a bioinformatics program, known as GlycReSoft, for interpretation of glycomics and glycoproteomics liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry data sets. GlycReSoft uses averagine values tailored to glycopeptides to pick peaks from the raw mass spectral dataset. It combines proteomics and glycomics data to generate a search space against which the picked peaks are searched.  GlycReSoft allows users to identify with high confidence site-specific glycosylation of complex glycoproteins.

In addition to his role as Editor at Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Dr. Zaia serves on the editorial boards of Molecular and Cellular Proteomics, Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, and Mass Spectrometry Reviews. He has published more than 130 research articles and reviews. He has mentored 17 post-doctoral scientists, 10 Ph.D. graduates (1 Dept. of Chemistry, 5 Dept. Biochemistry, 3 Bioinformatics Program, 1 Molecular and Translational Medicine program), 4 present Ph.D. students, and 3 M.S. graduates. He serves as treasurer of the Boston Glycobiology Discussion group. He has taught tutorials on glycomics and glycoproteomics at conferences including US HUPO, the ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, and the Society for Glycobiology Annual Conference.
