The Proteomics Shared Resource Facility's mission is to provide well-maintained, state-of-the-art instrumentation and fundamental proteomics expertise to the Brown University and Rhode Island-EPSCoR scientific communities. We aim to be a focal point of intellectual activity in proteomics by enabling nationally recognized proteomics research within Rhode Island. We welcome inquiries from scientists and teachers seeking information regarding how we may assist them in furthering their research and educational goals. The facility's function is catalyzed by its Directors, a responsible Facility Manager and a knowledgeable advisory committee. Together their research interests are based on the pursuit and implementation of proteomics approaches to biological inquiry.
As an NSF EPSCoR funded laboratory, the Proteomics Facility has a broadly-inclusive philosophy to ensure rapid and equal access to the facility's services for the entire Rhode Island research community. In addition to the acquisition of instrumentation, the Proteomics Core Facility will undertake the training of research in emerging proteomic techniques, a component that is essential to maintaining a productive and professional level of service. The Proteomics Facility has a strong commitment to be at the leading edge of current and developing technologies and provides consultation on their application.
Mass Spectrometry proteomics resources and services are provided by the COBRE Center for Cancer Research Development (CCRD) at Rhode Island Hospital: Proteomics Core.
