About the Proteomics Shared Resource (PSR)

The PSR provides mass spectrometry-based analysis services that span the identification, characterization and quantification of proteins. We routinely provide consultations to assist investigators with experimental designs to meet their project goals. Services are available to the VCU Massey Comprehensive Cancer Center members, VCU community, and researchers outside of VCU. We currently offer services for protein identification (e.g., gel bands, protein binding partners), molecular weight determination for peptides and proteins, protein post-translational modifications (e.g., methylation, acetylation, phosphorylation), and relative quantification (e.g., label free quantification, TMT).

Investigators are strongly encouraged to discuss their projects with the PSR staff before submitting samples for analyses. To initiate your project, please complete the submission form below so that we can provide you with a formal quote.
