Proteomics Workshop Facilitates Sharing Resources Across Nation | UAMSHealth
April 12, 2017 | Technology? Check. Expertise? Check. Leadership? Double check. The UAMS Proteomics Core Facility has been diligently amassing the technology needed to make it a leader in its field, which is studying the many functions of proteins. And now it's taking that leadership role a step further by facilitating the exchange of ideas among core directors and staff from across the nation. The first IDeA (Institutional Development Award) National Resource for Proteomics Workshop for Core Directors and Staff was held April 3-6 at UAMS. It featured training and networking opportunities and attracted 17 attendees from 11 states and Puerto Rico. Ellen Jones, Ph.D., of NCTR, speaks to the proteomics core directors about protein-detecting technology and mass spectrometry imaging. Alan Tackett, Ph.D. – co-director of the Proteomics Core, director of the IDeA National Resource for Proteomics and professor in the College of Medicine Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology – hopes
