Proteomics Research Center for Integrative Biology
Welcome to the Proteomics Research Center for Integrative Biology, established to provide new proteomic technologies for use in the biomedical research community.
The possible roles and importance of proteomics are rapidly growing across essentially all areas of biological research. The precise and comprehensive measurement of levels of expressed proteins and their modified forms can provide new insights into the molecular nature of cell-signaling pathways and networks, the cell cycle, cellular differentiation, and other processes relevant to understanding human health and the progression of various disease states. The ability to characterize protein complexes complements this capability, allowing hypotheses to be tested and the biological system operation to be defined.
However, the most advanced proteomic technologies and capabilities, mostly developmental by nature, have been largely unavailable to the biomedical research community. This Research Center has been established to bridge that gap, by developing and integrating new proteomic technologies for collaborative and service studies, disseminating the new technologies, and training scientists in their use.
