Dr. Arlene Bridges has been the Director of the ADME Mass Spectrometer Center at UNC since it began operation in 2003. She has over 15 years of experience in developing, validating, and running bioanalytical methods using HPLC-MS/MS. This includes formal training by Agilent, Thermo-Fisher Scientific, and Applied Biosystems (now AB Sciex) in the operation and maintenance of triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, ion trap mass spectrometers, and HPLCs. Her background in toxicology and pharmacology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her doctoral training from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill give her a unique perspective of how mass spectrometry can be used to answer questions regarding drug development and testing. Given her expertise and commitment to collaboration, Dr. Bridges is uniquely positioned to make an impact on the scientific research of faculty, fellows, graduate students and trainees.
