Current mass spectrometry platforms provide comprehensive and quantitative inventories of the proteome in complex biological specimens, in a single run. Application of such state of the art high-throughput technologies in common and rare diseases such as cancer, neurological and autoimmune diseases offers unique opportunities for gaining comprehensive insights into disease pathogenic mechanisms and identifying putative protein biomarkers that can be used for early diagnosis and better clinical management. Establishment of the first proteomics core translational facility in Cyprus was accomplished in 2013 through co-funding from the Norway Grants and the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics  (CING), where it is hosted by the Cancer Genetics, Therapeutics & Ultrastructural Pathology department of the CING.  The presentation will highlight the basic principles of proteomic strategies and examples of applications of the CING proteomic core facility in research.




Make sure you log in ahead of time, so that you catch the lecture start at 12:00 h sharp, and to keep your microphone muted unless requested otherwise or for critical comments and the final Q&A. As for all lectures in the CING Lectures and Transferrable Skills Lectures series, you are strongly encouraged to attend, join the discussion and find out what is going on in and around the CING.
