Facilities and Research Cores


Protein Mass Spectrometry Core Facility for Neuroscience

Since its establishment in 2005, the New York University Protein Mass Spectrometry Core Facility for neuroscience has provided cutting edge mass spectrometry-based protein analysis to molecular neuroscientists at the New York University School of Medicine. Funding from NIH-NINDS has enabled neuroscientists at NYU to take advantage of sophisticated and involved protein mass spectrometry and proteomics that would otherwise not be available to them, and guarantee them access to the technology. Neuroscientists at New York University can identify from one to thousands of proteins of interest, modification of these proteins such as phosphorylation, glycosylation, proteolysis and lipids, perform functional proteomics studies to identify the proteins involved in key signal transduction processes in neurons, and characterize protein-protein interactions by surface plasmon resonance.
