The UIUC Center for Neuroproteomics

on

Cell-Cell Signaling

Funded by

 

NIDA link

Grant No. P30 DA 018310

 

The Center provides proteomics and bioinformatics technologies to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the midwestern neuroscience community, while simultaneously advancing state-of-the-art proteomics technologies to new levels of performance, especially for the study of addiction mechanisms in the central nervous system. Specifically, the Center is built around the overarching theme of cell to cell signaling, integrating research groups with expertise in the fields of analytical chemistry and bioinformatics with those in biological and behavioral neuroscience in a unified, directed approach to discovery of the intricacies of intercellular signaling.

The Center is divided into three scientific core groups, the Sampling and Separation Core, the Protein Identification Core, and the Bioinformatics Core, plus a fourth, Administrative Core. The biological user base includes laboratories from the University of Illinois, as well as several from collaborating institutions including, among others, University of Florida and Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
