TARYN LUCAS, PH.D.

Postdoctoral Associate

Taryn completed her B.S in Chemistry and Biochemistry at West Chester University. She obtained her PhD in Chemistry at the University of California, San Diego where she studied the binding preferences of influenza A virus. In the Malaker lab, she is interested in the structure of mucin glycoproteins and their expression in cancer.

KEIRA MAHONEY, PH.D.

Postdoctoral Associate

Keira completed her B.S. in chemistry at the University of Rhode Island, where she did research in method development for mass spectrometric analysis of energetic materials. She went on to obtain her PhD at the University of Virginia, where she worked to improve methodology for mass spectrometric identification of post translationally modified antigens. In the Malaker lab she works to optimize protocols, instrumentation, and programs for glycoproteomics.
