Mr. Young received his B.S in Biology in 2011 from Tennessee State University, and joined the MSP-SF early in 2012. He has gone through extensive training in his first 2-3 years by the MSP-SF staff and the Director, where as Lab Manager he is the front-line administrator and general staff scientist, answering or directing all inquiries by phone and email, receiving new samples, initiating and updating the LIMS. He handles billing, teaches basic lab techniques to new staff, rotating students, and collaborators. He also carries out basic sample preparation procedures for proteomics analyses and operates the MALDI-TOF-MS instrument, while also organizing the weekly sample workflow. Mr. Young has become a very valuable part of the MSP-SF.
