Recent NSF Awards in Proteomics and Protein Research
Title: Amyloid Regulatory Networks
Principal Investigator: Regina Murphy
Sponsor: University of Wisconsin-Madison
Start/End Date: June 1, 2013 – May 31, 2016
Amount Awarded to Date: $390,001
Funds an effort to investigate the non-self association between amyloidogenic proteins, examining roughly 100 different pairs of proteins to determine if they interact. For interacting proteins, experiments will be done to identify the portions of the proteins involved in the interaction and to measure the effect of these interactions on progression on the amyloidogenesis pathway.
Title: Next-Generation Ion Mobility-Mass-Spectrometry of Protein-ligand and Multiprotein Complexes
Principal Investigator: Brandon Ruotolo
Sponsor: University of Michigan Ann Arbor
Start/End Date: May 1, 2013 – April 30, 2018
Amount Awarded to Date: $250,000
Funds development of a mass spec technique combining nanospray ionization with ion-mobility mass spec to investigate drug molecule binding with multi-protein complexes.
