Welcome to At the Source


Welcome to At the source, the blog focusing on biomedical proteomics research portfolio at the UCSF/NIH mass spectrometry national research Resource. Our portfolio of activities also includes both the discovery and targeted proteomics research efforts of the Adelson Medical Research Foundation (AMRF) consortium involved in human neuronal regeneration and repair.

We’ll be posting on research progress, technological innovation, new software tools, conferences, workshops and publications. In cooperation with MCP we will link tutorials and related instructional material that help foster development of the whole field.

Initially we will describe our current collaborative portfolio that illustrates a number of ways that chromatography, mass spectrometry and bioinformatics can be employed effectively to reveal new insights into problems at the forefront of biomedical research. Results from most projects provide unanticipated mechanistic grasps on the molecular details of cell function or dysfunction and help decipher a more sophisticated knowledge of mammalian and human biology at the protein level.

In addition, I would like to announce the launch of our newly updated website, and we hope you will find our blog interesting and informative. Comments are welcome.
