David M. Lubman
David M. Lubman is currently the Maude T Lane Professor of surgery at the University of Michigan Medical Center. He is also a Professor of pathology, a Professor of chemistry, an Associate Member of the Comprehensive Cancer Center, and an Associate Member of the BioInformatics Program. He received his A.B. degree from Cornell University, NY, USA in 1975 and his Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry under the direction of Professor Richard N Zare at Stanford University, Calif, USA in 1979. He was a Fellow at the Department of Chemical Physics at the Weizmann Institute in 1981. He has been at the University of Michigan since 1983 initially at the Department of Chemistry where he developed a program in the areas of laser chemistry and mass spectrometry. His laboratory has published over 225 papers and graduated 53 Ph.D. students, many of them have gone on to hold leadership positions in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Most recently, he has undergone a career switch and joined the Department of Surgery to develop a program in new technologies aimed at discovering markers of early cancer and prognosis of disease. Much of this work is focused on glycoproteomic changes in proteins during cancer progression and newer work on mapping pathways in disease using a mass spec-based approach. The group has filed numerous patents resulting in the development of new companies and new products involved in liquid mapping of proteins, protein microarrays, and new mass spec-based technology and hardware. Lubman is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a Member of the American Association of Cancer Research.
