The Proteomics Research Platform develops and applies advanced proteomics methods to further our understanding of cardiac disease, pathways, targets and drug effects.
The platform provides infrastructure for the identification and quantification of proteins and their post-translational modifications (PTMs). This includes expertise in tissue, cell, and secreted extraction, peptide separations, PTM enrichment strategies, multiplex labelling strategies, and state-of-the-art sensitive mass spectrometry (MS) for discovery-driven experiments. Our expertise extends to biofluid and blood-based proteomic profiling, tissue analyses (including low sample amount), and cell-secreted factors including extracellular vesicles.
The platform offers advice in experimental design and accurate data interpretation, and continuously develops and adapts new sample preparation techniques and MS approaches to provide multitude of solutions for individual research projects.
