Nancy Boucher


Research professional


Since 2014, my career profile as a reseach professional has revolved around the fascinating field of mass spectrometry. This science allow to dissect cellular mechanisms using innovative and advanced analysis methods. Our studies using LDTD-MS allow to identify and develop metabolomic signatures for specific clinical or industrial aspects. We also develop quantitative metabolomic methods applied to infectious diseases using LC-MRM. Our SYNAPT G2-Si is versatile and allow us to work on varied projects.
