Welcome to the University of Texas System Proteomics Network!

Our mission is to advance science and improve the understanding of disease through the development, implementation, and advancement of proteomics through strategic investment in the state-of-the-art technology, expert consultation, collaboration and training.

Proteomics, the large-scale comprehensive study of proteins, how they work, and their application to human health, holds great promise in contributing to the prevention and cure of disease by translating basic science discoveries into the clinical practice of personalized medicine.
The University of Texas System (UTS) Proteomics Network is a major UTS collaborative initiative of our academic and health institutions continuing their tradition of excellence in advancing science and improving health care. The Network provides key services to enhance the capabilities of investigators and researchers by extending access to available institutional proteomics infrastructure, instrumentation, and technical expertise for basic, translational and clinical proteomics. It is designed to promote better utilization and enhanced capabilities of existing proteomics cores, as well as promote research and development of new and emerging proteomics core functionalities that will enhance research activities and studies impacting human health at all UT System institutions.

The main goals of the UTS Proteomics Network are:

  • Provide scientists and researchers system-wide access to leading-edge technology, advanced methodologies and progressive technical and scientific expertise, while establishing a national reputation through education, outreach and strategic technology and scientific investments; 
  • Improve research acuity, efficiency and cost-effectiveness through investment in high-performance technologies and computational solutions that enable cores to better attract and support competitive grant-funded research; 
  • Offer educational opportunities for users, trainees and young researchers related to advanced technologies and analytical methodologies in proteomics; 
  • Increase inter-institutional collaborations on proteomics projects.
