About Us

The UAB Mass Spectrometry/ Proteomics (MSP) Shared Facility (SF) is a research resource that provides services to UAB Cancer Center members to identify, characterize, and quantify proteins, and protein post-translational modifications isolated from cells, biological fluids, and tissues. The over-arching goal of the MSP-SF is to provide state-of-the-art capabilities and training in mass spectrometry, proteomics, and bioanalytic technologies to support the research needs of UAB Cancer Center members.

Specific Aims:

  1. Provide high-quality and cost-effective mass spectrometry and proteomics services to Cancer Center members including:
    1. protein identification and quantification including modifications in purified and complex biological samples;
    2. aiding with experimental design all the way through to statistical and basic systems biology analyses of mass spectrometry/ proteomics datasets;
    3. working closely with PI's and Jr. faculty to submit manuscripts, grants, and presentations.
  2. Develop new and improved approaches while integrating the latest state-of-the-art technologies to support cancer research;
  3. Provide training and education to UAB Cancer Center members through seminars, by participation in formal graduate courses, through web sites, and also through individual and team meetings.
