Dr. Leslie Frost
Associate Professor of Chemistry
B.S. (Chemistry), West Virginia University
M.S. (Chemistry), West Virginia University
Ph.D. (Chemistry), University of Virginia
Dr. Frost's research focuses on the use of biological mass
spectrometry in the identification and analysis of
peptides and proteins. Currently, she is working on
several projects that involve the identification of
insulin C-peptide binding proteins, cholesterol
metabolism, cancer projects, the analysis of insulin
receptors, and developing a novel phosphoTip.
Dr. Frost received a MU-ADVANCE
mini-grant that funded summer research for the
project: “Isolation and Identification of Insulin
C-Peptide Binding Proteins.” This award resulted in
fulfilling two of the Program’s goals: 1) Dr. Frost
was able to obtain some promising results that will
allow her to write a stronger grant proposal, and 2)
Dr. Frost served as a role model to the female STEM
undergraduate who worked with her on the project.
This student presented the results at the annual
Marshall University Sigma Xi Research Day.
Dr. Frost currently teaches Biochemistry Lecture and
Lab, and Modern Instrument Methods at the
undergraduate and graduate level.
