Biography

Dr. Griffin is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota. He is also the Faculty Director of the Center for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics core facility, serving research needs of the University community.  His research interests are in developing analytical and bioinformatics tools, focused on mass spectrometry-based methods and data, and applying these tools to interesting questions in biology and biomedical research.  He leads the Galaxy for proteomics (Galaxy-P) project (galaxyp.org), which seeks to develop bioinformatics tools for integrative analysis of mass spectrometry data with other types of ‘omics data.  A main objective of this ongoing work is to promote community adoption of reproducible informatics tools for multi-omic molecular characterization of biological systems.
