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 signaling 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 is a member of the National Network of Advanced Proteomics Infrastructure (NAPI), which is funded by the Research Council of Norway. Both the NAPI Project Manager (Tuula Nyman) and NAPI Administrative Manager (Joe Robertson) are based at PCF.
