The Proteomics Core Facility (PCF) at Oslo University Hospital – Rikshospitalet and University of Oslo provides proteomic service to all research groups in the HSØ region in need of it. The main areas of expertise of PCF are in protein identification and quantification, and in the analysis of proteins’ post-translational modifications and protein interactions. The unit has special expertise with proteomics applied to immunology and cell signalling research, as well as in clinical proteomics applications.
Proteomics methods, techniques, and instruments are under very active development world-wide. PCF collaborates with several research groups locally and internationally to develop and set-up new proteomics techniques that can be later on taken into the list of services provided by the unit. PCF (Tuula Nyman) is coordinating the National Network for Advanced Proteomics Infrastructure (NAPI) recently funded by the Research Council of Norway.
