Neil Kelleher’s research group is focused on top-down proteomics, chromatin biology, and natural product biosynthesis and discovery. Contributing to both technology development and application of mass spectrometry in chemistry and biology, the Kelleher lab is interested in the biosynthesis and discovery of novel natural products with potential pharmacological activities. The Kelleher lab is leveraging top-down proteomics — the analysis of intact proteins for precise localization of post-translational modifications — to advance and contribute to the understanding of chromatin and cancer biology. Kelleher is the Walter and Mary E. Glass Professor of Molecular Biosciences. He is also a professor of chemistry in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and a professor of medicine in the Feinberg School of Medicine. Kelleher is the faculty director of the Northwestern Proteomics Center of Excellence and a member of the Chemistry of Life Processes Institute and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center.
