Meet the Authors

Barry Jones, Ph.D, Manager, LCMS Biologics and Biomarkers

Barry JonesDr. Barry Jones joined Advion Biosciences in 2007, began the LCMS Biologics Group in 2008 under Dr. Gary Schultz, and now leads the large molecule LCMS method development group at Q2 Solutions. Research within the LCMS biologics group at Q2 Solutions is focused on targeted quantitative LC-MS/MS analysis of endogenous biomolecules and large molecule biotherapeutics on triple quadrupole and orbitrap instruments. Dr. Jones is particularly interested in the application of hybrid Immunoaffinity-LC-MS/MS methods to high-throughput bioanalysis, as well as the scientific challenges and regulatory strategies for validation of LCMS biomarker assays supporting drug development in a regulated environment.

Prior to joining Q2 Solutions, Dr. Jones led the Mass Spectrometry Facility at Binghamton University, N.Y. using Q-TOF and MALDI mass spectrometry and nanoESI techniques in support of proteomic research. He earned his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at Binghamton University in 2006.

Paul Rhyne, Ph.D, Scientific Director, Immunoassay Services

Paul RhyneDr. Rhyne, currently leads a bioanalytical group for Q2 Solutions, a Quintiles Quest joint venture. Dr. Rhyne has more than 15 years of scientific leadership experience in laboratory operations, clinical biomarkers, large molecule PK analysis, and Immunogenicity assessment. He obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Tennessee Memphis and completed 3 years of post-doctoral studies at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Dr. Rhyne was an Associate Director at Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, a Senior Director at Tandem laboratories, and has held many senior leadership positions at Upstate Biotechnology and Amplistar Inc. A noted industry expert in clinical biomarkers and large molecule bioanalytical analysis, and has published many scientific publications in peer reviewed journals. Dr. Rhyne is an active member of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists including serving on programming committees, steering committee for translational biomarker focus group, and chair of the biomarker discussion group.
