Lucas Veillon

College of Arts & Sciences, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry

Dr. Veillon is a biochemist pursuing the development of analytical methodologies and their application to the field of glycobiology in the context of understanding the role of glycosylation in human health and disease. In his investigations, biochemistry, molecular biology and molecular mass spectrometric techniques are utilized to advance the fields of glycomics, glycoproteomics and glycolipidomics. Dr. Veillon received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Louisiana State University in 2011, where he was a National Science Foundation CMC-IGERT Fellow. Prior to joining TTU Lucas was a post-doctoral research associate in the analytical services laboratory at the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center, at the University of Georgia, and a research fellow in the Division of Glycopathology at the Tohoku Medical and Pharmaceutical University, Institute of Molecular Biomembrane and Glycobiology, Sendai, Japan.
