Dr. Viveka Mayya completed his PhD at the University of Connecticut Health Center. He has contributed to the use of isotope-labeled standard peptides for the quantification of proteins and phosphorylation sites by mass spectrometry. He has also implemented phosphoproteomic approaches to identify over 10,000 phosphorylation sites in Jurkat T leukemic cells and to gain systems-level insights into the role of phosphorylation in T-Cell Receptor signaling. This study, published in Science Signaling, was selected as a 'Signaling Breakthrough of 2009'. His current research interests are in immunology, T cell motility and optical microscopy.
