The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

The Department has conducted a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and has introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff. In order to accommodate these new measures, our facilities will be operating revised services for the foreseeable future. Details of current arrangements and available services can be found here.

Proteomics

Proteomics is the analysis of complete complements of proteins and includes not only their identification, but also quantitation, determination of cellular location, how they are modified, how they interact with each other, their activities and, ultimately, the elucidation of protein function. This powerful analysis can, for example, allow differences in the protein levels of samples between diseased and normal tissues to be assessed. Proteins are generally enzymatically digested (with or without pre-fractionation) to produce peptides which are then analysed by state-of-the-art mass spectrometry techniques.

The Cambridge Centre for Proteomics offers considerable expertise to worldwide researchers in industrial and academic environments in gel and mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Within the Centre, full quantitative analysis on virtually any sample of any complexity is possible, as well as customised analysis, such as for unusual sample types and novel protein modifications.
