The UVic Protein Centre
The UVic Proteomics Centre is Canada’s
Genomics Innovation Network Centre for proteomics technology
development and service. The Centre has been providing
protein analytical services to a wide variety of academic,
industrial, and government laboratories since 1982, making
us the longest operating protein core facility in Canada.
The Centre’s technology development program supports further
proteomics research and the development and application of
novel methods in the areas of protein identification and
characterization, quantitative proteomics for biomarker
discovery and validation, as well as bioinformatics.
We house over $10 million in state-of-the art mass
spectrometry instruments, which are supported by a dedicated
team of almost 30 researchers and technicians.
