Abby S. Gelb, PhD

Abby S. Gelb, PhD. is an experienced bioanalytical mass spectrometrist with expertise in proteomics and glycoproteomics. At COUR, she is involved in the development of analytical analyses from R&D to QC.

Abby obtained her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Arizona in 2012 with 3 years of research experience. Her doctorate was completed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2018 with her doctoral research focused on ion mobility spectrometry coupled to mass spectrometry for the analysis and characterization of glycopeptides. In 2015, she was awarded an NIH T32 predoctoral training grant to extend her research towards clinical analysis of prostate cancer-related enzymes. Abby obtained a postdoctoral fellowship at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veteran’s Affairs Hospital (Bedford, Massachusetts) in collaboration with the Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry, Boston University School of Medicine in 2018 to analyze post-mortem brain tissue samples from Alzheimer’s patients for analysis by imaging mass spectrometry. In 2019, Abby moved full time to the Boston University to analyze glycoconjugates, specifically glycolipids, sourced from human and animal milks. Abby has authored several peer-reviewed publications appearing in Analytical Chemistry and The Analyst and has presented her work at several national and international research conferences.
