The Facility of Bio-Proteomics provides an advanced scientific and technical support in differential protein profiles and protein identification for both basic and applied research. It is conceived as a Laboratory in the S.O.C. Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology with the following mission: 1. to create a multidisciplinary and collaborative research group with the capabilities to identify proteins by ‘Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight, MALDI-TOF’ mass spectrometry; 2. to analyze differential protein expression profiles and to identify proteins of interest from tissue, biological fluid and/or cell lines by peptide mass fingerprinting (PMF); 3. to search for potential protein biomarkers and/or targets for therapeutics in cancer or other major diseases.
