Proteomics Shared Resource


The Massey Proteomics Shared Resource provides mass spectrometry-based analysis services for proteins obtained from a wide range of biological samples and access to contemporary sample preparation and instrumentation for the identification, characterization and quantification of proteins. We routinely provide consultations to educate investigators about proteomics experimental designs. Services are available to the Massey Cancer Center membership, VCU community and interested collaborators outside VCU. Based on demands of the Massey membership, we offer services for the identification of protein binding partners, phosphoproteomics and relative quantitation of proteins using tandem mass tagging with isobaric labels. Investigators are strongly encouraged to discuss their projects with Proteomics Core staff before submitting samples for analyses.
