Dr. Rob Haselberg is an assistant professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He has a strong background in capillary electrophoresis and liquid chromatography hyphenated with mass spectrometry to characterize intact proteins. This ranges from proteins as small as insulin up to large protein complexes. In all this research the goal is to keep the protein intact from sample to detector, as this reduces data complexity and minimizes the risk of introducing artifacts along the way. As studying these properties of intact proteins is not straightforward, he develops and applies the required advanced hyphenated analytics. All of this is done in the context of biopharmaceutical, clinical, and doping analysis, often in collaboration with companies and other university groups.
