PRG Surveys Proteomics Community on Lab Facilities


The Proteomics Research Group of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities is conducting a survey aimed at better understanding the relationship between proteomics researchers and the labs that serve them.

The survey – the first of its kind from the PRG – is designed to provide insight into how proteomics labs interact with their clients, the capacity of labs to meet the demands of their clients, and the mix of experimental techniques offered to and requested by lab clients.

Both users and administrators of proteomics facilities are encouraged to take part in the survey, which is open to ABRF members and non-members alike. Responses will be accepted until Dec. 7, and the results will be compiled and analyzed by the PRG and presented at the 2011 ABRF meeting in San Antonio. No institution- or lab-specific information will be shared.

Those interested in participating can access the survey here.
