Jeffrey M. Spraggins is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and is a member of the Mass Spectrometry Research Center at Vanderbilt University. He received his B.A. in Chemistry from the College of Wooster and his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Delaware (2009). After completing his postdoctoral work with Prof. Richard Caprioli he stayed on as a research faculty member at Vanderbilt University. His research focuses on developing instrumentation for high-performance imaging mass spectrometry and pipelines for 3-D multimodal molecular imaging. As part of the Human Biomolecular Atlas Program (HuBMAP, NIH), Dr. Spraggins is the Director of Research of the Vanderbilt University Biomolecular Mutlimodal Imaging Center (BIOMIC) bringing together 3-D imaging mass spectrometry with a variety of in vivo and ex vivo imaging technologies to create new modalities of molecularly-informed medical imaging.
