Congratulations to Jared Kafader, PhD Research Assistant Professor here at Northwestern Proteomics for making The The Analytical Scientist‘s Top 40 Under 40 2022 Power List! A well-deserved honor. Find out who else made the list here –
In the coming decades, efforts to understand disease will be propelled by building 3D maps of protein arrangements in cells over time, a team of scientists says. A workshop about the study of proteins on a large scale […]
Investigators led by Neil Kelleher, PhD, professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology and of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, have developed a new imaging technique that increases the detection of intact proteoforms by fourfold when compared to current protein imaging methods. The […]
With researchers touting recent success in sequencing the human genome’s remaining gaps, an emerging frontier is proteomics: identifying and studying an entire set of expressed proteins in the human body and other organisms. Collectively, these sets are called proteomes, and […]
As new technology enables researchers to find and characterize less-common post-translational modifications that drive gene expression and cellular metabolism, the movement to catalog the entire human proteome gains momentum Sequencing the human genome provided biologists with a potential […]
In a new article in ACS Chem. Biol., a team of researchers led by Northwestern Proteomics graduate student Luis Schachner show that measuring proteoforms – the specific molecular forms of proteins including post-translational modifications – can shed new […]
Northwestern Medicine investigators have discovered novel mechanisms that regulate a cell’s response to molecular stressors, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The findings may help improve the understanding of how cancer and other […]
Josh Levitsky, MD, ’08 MS, professor of Medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, has been selected as president-elect of the American Society of Transplantation (AST). Levitsky’s term as president will begin in June 2023. With more than 4,000 members, […]
Participants in a NIH Workshop on Functional and Integrative Proteomics Abstract. All human diseases involve proteins, yet our current tools to characterize and quantify them are limited. To better elucidate proteins across space, time, and molecular composition, we […]
Northwestern scientists are leading the charge to sequence proteins the way the Human Genome Project sequenced genes and DNA. A recent study in Science confirms they are on to something big. Neil Kelleher, PhD, has been weighing proteins since 1999, […]
