The project involves developing mass spectrometry-base analytical methods and implementing these assays in human studies. These include: The quantitation of a panel of myokine, adipokine, cytokine species in human plasma, hair, saliva, and/or urine using targeted proteomic analysis; the quantitation of small molecule species such as endocannabinoids, corticosteroids, and similar species that relate to psychological processes including behavioral reinforcement and/or stress response (NMR, mass spectrometry) following chromatographic purification.
