Dr. Khoo received his B.S. (1989) and Ph.D. in Biochemistry (1992) from Imperial College, London, UK. He then stayed at Imperial College as a Postdoctoral Fellow for another year before moving to Colorado State University and worked there for 2 years. He started his independent research career at the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Taiwan in 1996, and recently served as its Associate Director (2012-2017) and Acting Director (2017-2019). He is currently an Editorial Board member of Glycobiology, Glycoconjugate J, and Molecular and Cellular Proteomics; council member of Taiwan Proteomics Society; co-founder and Steering Committee member of Taiwan GlycoForum, and oversees the running of GlycoNet@Academia Sinica.
Dr. Khoo's research interests are focused on the development and applications of concerted mass spectrometry-based analytical techniques for high sensitivity mapping and sequencing of complex glycans and intact glycopeptides. In particular, he has pioneered the sulfoglycomics of immune cells and established a high throughput nanoLC-MS2/MS3-based high precision glycotope-centric glycomics platform. In parallel, he is developing mass spectrometry-based methods enabling shotgun glycoproteomic applications and comprehensive site-specific membrane protein glycosylation analysis. He received the 2018 ASBMB/MCP Lectureship award for contribution to the emerging fields of glycomics and glycoproteomics.
