Proteomics involves the analysis and identification of protein structure and function. Through the Proteomics Core, investigators at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere have access to a broad range of proteomics services, technologies and guidance to help them answer scientific questions.

Toward a goal of improving patient care, 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.

The director of the Proteomics Core is Daniel J. McCormick, Ph.D. Dr. McCormick 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.
