Protein research leaps forward with the opening of the Proteomics Core Facility

The Proteomics Core Facility was established by Dr. Stephen Withers in 2002. In 2008, Dr. Leonard Foster became the Director of the Proteomics Core Facility which has a strong track record of service provision and technology development. The well-equipped facility houses a number of mass spectrometers and experienced staff with strong knowledge in relative quantitative proteomics, functional proteomics, and bioinformatics.
