Research Interests:

Professor Gaskell’s research interests and expertise are at the interface of the physical sciences with the life and clinical sciences. Specifically, he has been concerned with the development of mass spectrometry, related analytical techniques and their application to problems of biological importance. He is particularly concerned with the understanding of the gas-phase ion chemistry biomolecules (notably peptides and proteins) and the exploitation of that understanding in enhancing analytical approaches.

Much of his recent research has been devoted to proteomics (the definition of the protein complement of cells and organisms), with particular reference to quantitative determinations. In his position as President and Principal at Queen Mary, his personal research is mainly focussed on continuing collaborations with colleagues in the UK and the US.
