Research Interests

Developing a greater understanding of the intimate details of the processes inside living cells requires in-depth analysis of the molecular machinery involved in those activities, and proteins are the functional core of many of these mechanisms. We are using mass spectrometry to gain extensive knowledge of the proteins present in different tissues and cell types. These proteomic studies are performed at different levels:

  1. Comprehensive knowledge (Qualitative and quantitative) of protein expression.
  2. Posttranslational modifications (specific, regulated, dynamic) to particular proteins.
  3. Defining the complex interaction network of these polypeptides.

We provide mass spectrometry capabilities and expertise in the proteomic analysis for many different collaborative projects. We are particularly involved in collaborative projects with laboratories around the world to characterize neuronal structure and function, aiming to identify target proteins or pathways to develop regenerative strategies.
