Proteomics Shared Resource
The Proteomics Shared Resource offers state-of-the-art, user-friendly mass spectrometry-based resources to support SCI members’ studies of protein presence, structure and/or function in cancer-related inquiries. In addition to providing facilities and services, the Resource offers training, methods development and new applications designed to meet the rapidly evolving needs of cancer researchers.
The Resource houses 14 mass spectrometers and associated instrumentation, along with in-house proteomics data processing capabilities.
The Resource offers the following services to SCI members:
- Peptide and protein identification
- Characterization of post-translational modifications
- Protein quantitation
- Biomarker verification and metabolic studies
The Resource also provide education and training to the Stanford research community on how their work can be enhanced and improved by mass spectrometry methods. With the availability of quality on campus mass spectrometry support, researchers become more involved with experimental design, data analysis and results interpretation, developing a real understanding of the results.
