Proteomics Facility

Use science without limits.

Proteomics is widely and successfully used in drug discovery, disease treatment research, and biomarker discovery. These intricate studies require high levels of quality controls, adequate instrumentation, and expertise to analyze thousands of proteins to obtain meaningful results. 

We embrace these principles and invest continuously by recruiting experts, procuring hi-tech equipment, and regularly revising protocols and procedures. We are experts in proteomics, tissue microanalysis, and relevant bioinformatics platforms. Research at the facility has led to numerous scientific discoveries and has been extensively published and cited. 

The facility assists researchers with state-of-the-art mass spectrometry expertise, practice, and instrumentation to address health-related scientific questions concerning our community. Researchers study the proteome, including modifications made to a particular set of proteins produced by a cell, tissue, organism, or system. 

Understand our origin

Located at the Temple School of Pharmacy, the facility was established in 2005 as part of the Temple University Researcher Development Program and provides accessible proteomics capability for biological and biomedical research to support faculty within Temple and outside institutions, including pharmaceutical companies.
