Early life and education
The Hunt laboratory
Among his many research interests, Prof. Hunt investigates how the immune system uses peptides to kill diseased cells, and how modifications to chromatin-associated proteins called histones create a "Code" that may be involved in many gene regulation events.
Professor Hunt teaches Organic Chemistry lab at the University of Virginia.
Widely regarded in the proteomic community, Prof. Hunt has been awarded several honors including the Distinguished Contribution Award from the American Society for Mass Spectrometry; the Christian B. Anfinsen Award from the Protein Society; the Chemical Instrumentation Award and Field and Franklin Award from the American Chemical Society; the Thomson Medal from the International Mass Spectrometry Society; the Human Proteome Organization's Distinguished Achievement Award in Proteomics, and the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities 2007 Award.
