Proteomics Core

The mission of Proteomics Core Facility is to help researchers advance their biomedical research programs at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, the COBRE Cardiovascular Research Program and the Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium. The Proteomics Core Facility is equipped with gel electrophoresis units, image analyzers and digitizers, and robotics for mass spectrometry sample preparation. Currently, two types of tandem mass spectrometers, Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization (MALDI) and a nanoflow Liquid Chromatography coupling to an Electrospray Ionization Linear Ion Trap (LC-MS), are utilized for protein identification/characterization. The various applications include the studies of protein expression profile, posttranslational modifications, and partial sequencing of novel proteins. The staff members also consult with researchers about their particular research interests and assist with the development of specific applications and the solution to problems.


The Current Goals of the Proteomics Core Facility include:

    1. To provide Proteomics analyses to researchers in New Orleans.
    2. To promote awareness of Proteomics applications in Biomedical Research in the Greater New Orleans Area.
    3. To promote collaboration with investigators in Proteomics-related research and applications.
    4. To facilitate investigators in extramural funding opportunities.
    5. To expand the Proteomics Core Facility in the rapidly emerging Proteomics fields.


The Proteomics Core Facility is located in the Clinical Science Research Building room 331
