Proteomics involves the analysis and identification of protein structure and function. Through the Proteomics Core at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, investigators have access to a broad range of proteomics services, technologies and guidance to help them answer scientific questions.
The core offers services and conducts research in the areas of mass spectrometry-based differential proteomics, peptide synthesis, protein and peptide purification, and protein identification, characterization and expression. Many of the services require the use of mass spectrometry and other specialized equipment.
The director of the Proteomics Core Daniel J. McCormick, Ph.D., and his staff have extensive expertise in proteomics and protein chemistry. Together they ensure that the core is providing the most up-to-date services and technologies for investigators.
The Proteomics Core is one of the three core facilities that make up the Medical Genome Facility. Mayo Clinic's Center for Individualized Medicine and the Research Core Subcommittee provide funding for the Medical Genome Facility. The Proteomics Core is also a shared resource of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and receives funding through its National Cancer Institute Cancer Center Support Grant.
The Proteomics Core provides services to all Mayo Clinic faculty and staff engaged in research. Additionally, services are offered to non-Mayo investigators and research collaborators. For more information, please contact the core.
