The Qiu Lab at Michigan State University, Department of Chemistry works at the nexus of analytical chemistry, toxicology, microbiology and neuroscience. We use analytical and biological tools, particularly mass spectrometry, to understand the molecular mechanisms of environment-host-microbe interactions.
