Research Overview

Professor Stobaugh's research emphasizes liquid phase capillary column separation techniques (capillary electrochromatography, capillary liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis) and various chemistries for the enhancement of separation and detection. Application of these technologies is directed toward the in vivo analysis of anticancer agents, drugs, and peptides and rapid high efficiency separations of bio-macromolecules.
