Welcome To The Blair Lab
We are one out of 40 member labs within the Center for Cancer Pharmacology, a Type I center, within the Department of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics.
Dr. Blair's laboratory consists of 2,000 nsf of new laboratory space on the eighth floor of the Biomedical Research Building II/III on Curie Boulevard on the University of Pennsylvania campus. The lab is equipped with four Waters 2690 Alliance HPLC and five Hitachi gradient HPLC systems (four 6200, one 7100) each fitted with Hitachi (L-4200, L-2400) UV detectors and Hitachi (D-2500) printing integrators and Autosampler 2200/EZ. Two of the Waters systems are attached to triple quadrupole mass spectrometers. There are five tandem mass spectrometers (two Thermo Finnigan TSQ Quantum Ultra, one Applied Biosystems API4000) and five LC/ion trap mass spectrometers (Thermo Finnigan LCQ classic three dimensional ion trap and LTQ linear ion trap) and one Thermo Finnigan LTQ-FT Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance instrument. The availability of this instrumentation allows both quantitative and structural determinations to be performed in our many projects as well as offer support to other Center Investigators.
