The Department of Chemistry Mass Spectrometry Core Laboratory is excited to welcome our newest staff member, Diane Wallace.  Diane is a North Carolina native, originating from Salisbury, North Carolina. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and a Master of Science in Chemistry. She studied under Dr. Nadja B. Cech and focused on mass spectrometry-based metabolomics analysis of natural products. Diane also worked in the Triad Mass Spectrometry Facility assisting Dr. Daniel A. Todd. She is proficient in mass spectrometry, analytical chemistry, and metabolomics data analysis. She is excited to be joining UNC and hopes to further her mass spectrometry knowledge and challenge herself with new research directions. She is looking forward to working with her new UNC colleagues.

The UNC Department of Chemistry Chemical Research Instrumentation Teaching and Core Laboratories, CRITCL, Mass Spectrometry laboratory specializes in small molecule analysis. Our services include, but are not limited to, quantitative mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography separations, fragmentation and structural elucidation, MS/MS & MSn mass spectrometry, complex mixture analysis, molecular formula confirmation, high resolution and accurate mass, analysis, & trace metal determination/quantitation.

The mass spectrometry laboratory provides individualized user training for undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral scholars of the Department of Chemistry and UNC campus. The laboratory aims to provide the highest quality mass spectrometric services possible to its users and clients.
