Dr. Zabet has been working in the Center for Biotechnology and Genomics (CBG) since 2009. He is currently a Research Associate Professor and serving as the Manager of Mass Spectrometry Core Facility in the CBG. His main area of interest is in the field of mass spectrometry-based proteomics/metabolomics using a variety of mass spectrometers to answer biological questions.
He received his Ph.D. from Saarland University, Germany, where he developed several mass spectrometry-based methods to facilitate analysis of proteins significantly. He then moved to Texas Tech University, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, as a postdoctoral research associate to study the mechanism of an anticancer drug using a proteomics approach.
Dr. Zabet also holds an Adjunct Graduate Faculty position in the Texas Tech University Department of Biological Sciences. He teaches graduate courses in Experimental Mass Spectrometry (BTEC 5313), Bioinformatics: Principle, Methods and Applications (BTEC 5001-04, as co-instructor) and serves as a committee member on graduate students' thesis committees as well as graduate students' advisor during their internship/thesis projects. He has several collaborations with the faculty from different departments across the Texas Tech University campus as well as Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and federal government agency (USDA), and he is the author of more than 20 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. Zabet is the member of American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) and Association for Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF). He was also the member of the TTU Transdisciplinary Academy. He has also served as a judge at regional and state science fairs, and graduate student research poster presentations by the Department of Biological Sciences.
