Proteomics is the study of the proteome or the entirety of proteins. It has become an indispensable tool in basic, clinical and translational research. Proteomics techniques are being successfully and more often applied to several fields in the biomedical research, including in drug discovery, diagnostic improvement and biomarker recognition for cancer, metabolic disorders, developmental and neurological pathologies, among others.

Our Proteomics Core Facility will provide state-of-the-art Proteomics platforms, resources, expertise and training to advance clinical and biomedical research and education to the biomedical community of researchers in Hawaii. It is our goal to ensure that researchers have access to Proteomics resources that will improve the outcome of their biomedical research and facilitate collaborations with investigators from other institutions across the country.
