Assay Development


The Proteomics Core will provide a comprehensive array of services pertaining to the design, performance and analysis of proteomic studies. The core not only offers the ability to implement and validate previously developed proteomic methods to profile proteins in biological fluids and tissues, to quantitate proteins, to identify proteins and posttranslational modifications, and to study protein-protein interactions, but also the capability to modify or develop entirely new assays when warranted.
A consultative service provided by key members of the core will be available to investigators to assess the rationale and feasibility for undertaking specific projects, designing proteomic studies, process and protocol development, proteomic data analysis, and the interpretation of results.

Proteomics Services
