Prof. Dr. David Smith is the former Director of the Nebraska Center for Mass Spectrometry. He obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Kansas U.S.A. He has over 180 publications in the field of mass spectrometry. He designed and constructed specialized mass spectrometers for studies of gas phase ion-molecule reactions. He also developed high sensitivity methods for exact mass measurements, chemical derivatization, advanced instrumentation for field desorption ionization, and GC MS interfaces optimized for highly polar compounds. Dr Smith has also completed several research programs based on applications of mass spectrometry for analysis of biomaterials. Major areas include structure elucidation of proteins and natural products, development of stable isotope tracer methodology for calcium and magnesium, and initial development of methods for studying the folded structures of proteins. Many of the protein structure studies focused on the causes of cataract and involved proteins isolated from the eye lens. During his professional career he also worked on biological mass spectrometry.
