Dr. Khiry Patterson
Dr. Khiry L. Patterson is a post-doctoral research scholar supporting the lab by establishing and maintaining robust quality control pipelines across multiple tandem mass spectrometry-based proteomics studies and platforms. Additionally, Dr. Patterson works with a team of scientists leveraging quantitative high-throughput proteomics to study the health disparity associated with Alzheimer’s disease and comorbidities among African Americans (Proteomics of Hypertension and Alzheimer’s disease in African Americans research grant). Dr. Patterson also contributes to the proteomics studies of the Vanderbilt Memory and Aging Project, a longitudinal cohort study examining the complex intersection of vascular health and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Khiry L. Patterson graduated with his doctoral degree in chemistry from Duquesne University. His
background includes investigating the gas-phase fragmentation pathways of N-terminally modified
peptide ions for enhanced de novo peptide sequencing. Dr. Patterson holds an appointment with the Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimer’s Center Interdisciplinary T32 Alzheimer’s Disease Training Program.
