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, […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
Now that the Human Genome Project has officially wrapped, an international team of researchers will map the entire collection of proteins in the human body. Plans and goals for the Human Proteoform Project were outlined in a paper published last […]
The Human Genome Project (HGP) was a remarkable and unqualified success profoundly transforming and accelerating biological and medical research while converting a ~ $4B public investment into over $700B of economic activity and new industries (1). The challenge of revealing […]
