The Proteomics Lab offers CICS scientists a variety of resources and expertise to conduct mass spectrometry based protein research. We work with them to learn and understand their specific needs, and then help design the appropriate proteomics workflow to achieve their goals.
We provide advice and research support for the design of the biological experiment, the implementation of proteomics methods, and the analysis of the data. We work side-by-side with the scientists to teach them protein and peptide labeling methods, peptide sample preparations, and how to operate the mass spectrometers.
The Proteomics Lab also prepares lectures on mass spectrometry with the aim to share with others our excitement about this versatile technology. Most importantly, the more CICS scientists understand about mass spectrometry, the more innovative they will be with the technology.
