Technologies and Resources for Core Laboratories

The mission of the Meharry Technologies and Resources for Core Laboratories is to provide services, computer resources, support, and training both inside and outside of the Meharry research community. Our goal is to ensure that all interested scientists are able to access and utilize state-of-the-art technologies for Protoemics, Mass Spectrometry, Imaging Analysis, Bioinformatics, and other data intensive applications. We strive to keep our facility up to date computationally and intellectually with services to support education and research in proteomics, bioinformatics, computational biology, and systems biology.

Our goals are to serve a broad research community and significantly enhance translational and clinical research at Meharry Medical College. We are committed to developing novel diagnostics and therapeutic interventions.

The Specific Aims of the Technologies and Resources for Core Laboratories are:

To develop a Proteomics Core Facility to expand and support Meharry's clinical and translational research activitiesTo develop collaborations and partnerships inside and outside of Meharry Medical College that accelerates clinical and translational research, with the common link being the reliance on state-of-the-art proteomics strategies.
