David M Lubman
Professor Department of Surgery
University of Michigan, USA
David Lubman is currently the Maude T Lane Professor of Surgery at the University of Michigan Medical Center. He is also Professor of Pathology, Professor of Chemistry, an Associate Member of the Comprehensive Cancer Center and an Associate Member of the BioInformatics Program. He received his A.B. from Cornell University in 1975 and his Ph.D. in 1979 under the direction of Professor Richard N Zare at Stanford University in Physical Chemistry. He was a fellow at the Weizmann Institute in 1981 in the Department of Chemical Physics. He has been at the University of Michigan since 1983 initially in the Department of Chemistry where he developed a program in the areas of laser chemistry and mass spectrometry. His lab has published over 250 papers and graduated 56 Ph.D.s many of whom 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 in 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. Dr Lubman is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a member of the American Association of Cancer Research.
