Proteomics Facility

Overview of Services

The Proteomics Core Facility's mission is to provide well-maintained, state-of-the-art instrumentation and fundamental proteomics expertise to Brown University and the Rhode Island scientific community. We aim to be a focal point of intellectual activity in proteomics by enabling nationally recognized proteomics research within Rhode Island. The Proteomics Core Facility provides training in emerging proteomic techniques and has a strong commitment to be at the leading edge of current and developing technologies and provide consultation on their application.  We welcome inquiries from scientists and teachers seeking information regarding how we may assist them in furthering their research and educational goals.
