David Wishart, PhD
Professor, University of Alberta
Dr. Wishart has active research programs in structural biology, nanobiology, synthetic biology, prion biology, bioinformatics and metabolomics. Some of his lab’s most significant contributions have been in the area of protein chemical shift analysis and the prediction of protein structure. Using advanced methods in NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, multi-dimensional chromatography and machine learning Dr. Wishart and his colleagues identified or found evidence for more than 8000 endogenous metabolites (Human Metabolome Database).
