Northwestern Medicine investigators have discovered novel mechanisms underlying a specific transcription factor essential for elongation control, the process of synthesizing RNA from DNA, according to findings published in Molecular Cell. “This is another superb molecular study by Dr. Yuki Aoi whom […]
Chemistry of Life Processes Institute (CLP) director Neil L. Kelleher and members of the CLP and Northwestern Proteomics team welcomed U.S. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky from the 9th District of Illinois to Silverman Hall today to discuss the promise and potential of the Human Proteoform […]
Setting audacious goals for technology innovation is a critical component of the Human Proteoform Project, a $1.3 billion movement to weigh and characterize every protein variation, (called proteoforms) in the human body.  A new technology announced today, co-developed by Northwestern’s […]
Proteomics is a broad term that can generically be defined as the study of the proteome, or the landscape of proteins expressed within a given biological context. More specifically, proteomics can entail investigating aspects of the proteome such […]
Northwestern University scientist have discovered families of proteins in the body that could potentially predict which patients may reject a new organ transplant, helping inform decisions about care. The advancement marks the beginning of a new era for […]
Eight years ago, an international team of researchers proposed that the term “proteoform” be adopted to describe the vast number of forms of protein products from our genes—including changes due to genetic variations, alternative RNA splicing, and post-translational […]

Methods of antibody detection are used to assess exposure or immunity to a pathogen. Here, we present Ig-MS, a novel serological readout that captures the immunoglobulin (Ig) repertoire at molecular resolution, including entire variable regions in Ig light […]
This episode of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Breakthroughs Podcast features Neil Kelleher, PhD, director of Northwestern Proteomics and Chemistry of Life Processes Institute. Millions of molecular proteins are swimming through our body’s cells and many studies […]
The Human Proteoform Atlas (HPfA) is a web-based repository of experimentally verified human proteoforms on-line at http://human-proteoform-atlas.org and is a direct descendant of the Consortium of Top-Down Proteomics’ (CTDP) Proteoform Atlas. Proteoforms are the specific forms of protein molecules expressed […]
