Proteomics Resource Facility joining Biomedical Research Core Facilities

February 2, 2023  //  FOUND IN: News

The U-M Biomedical Research Core Facilities (BRCF) are campuswide laboratories that develop and provide advanced scientific resources to enable biomedical research. 

Established more than 35 years ago, the BRCF has been offering centralized access to research services, shared equipment and expertise to biomedical researchers and investigators. The BRCF has been a staple of the research community, advancing biomedical research here at Michigan Medicine for decades.


The BRCF and the Department of Pathology have come together to transition the Proteomics Resource Facility (PRF), led by Alexey Nesvizhskii, Ph.D., into the BRCF where it will continue to offer resources and services through the BRCF.

The Proteomics Resource Facility was established in 2007 to provide state-of-the-art instrumentation, technical expertise and advanced informatics support for the application of mass spectrometry-based proteomics in biological research. The Core is managed by experienced scientists, each with over two decades of experience in the application of proteomics technologies to answer various basic and translational research questions.

The PRF has a proven track record of providing cost-effective, timely and high-quality service, as evidenced by its contribution to over 150 publications and support for numerous successful grant applications from various funding agencies. The PRF has been working with more than 60 investigators per year from various departments within the U-M Medical School and beyond. 

In recognition of these successes, the PRF is designated as a Proteomics Shared Resource for the University of Michigan Center for Gastrointestinal Research (2015-present) and the Rogel Cancer Center (2018-present). 

Now situated within the BRCF, the PRF has more direct access to other Core Facilities, including Epigenomics, Metabolomics, and Advanced Genomics, allowing for close interactions between Core experts and U-M researchers.
