Welcome to the webpage of the Kaltashov lab

You have reached the webpage of the Kaltashov laboratory at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, a dynamic and productive group that is set to celebrate its 20-th anniversary this year! Our research is focused on developing novel analytical strategies to study biopolymer architecture, dynamics, and function using mass spectrometry and chromatography as primary research tools (click here to learn more about our research projects). A distinct feature of our group is extensive collaboration with biopharmaceutical companies (Amgen, Biogen, Pfizer and Shire Human Genetic Therapies – now a part of Takeda), and the majority of our graduates join the BioPharma sector upon completing their degree work at UMass-Amherst.

We hope you will enjoy browsing this site, and please let us know if you have any questions (send your inquiries to the webmaster)
