Professor, Brigham Young University
Ryan Kelly is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Brigham Young University (BYU). He received his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from BYU in 2005 and then returned to BYU after spending 13 years as a staff scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. A central theme of Dr. Kelly’s research has been the development of new technological solutions for ultrasensitive biochemical analyses. His recent efforts have focused on single-cell proteomics and spatial proteomics, which have involved tailoring sample preparation, separations, ionization and mass spectrometry acquisition for low-input samples. His group’s efforts have enabled thousands of proteins to be rapidly profiled from single cells.
