Department METRIC Mass Spectrometry Platform Technology
About the Department
The overarching goal of the Molecular Education, Technology and Research
Innovation Center (METRIC) is to build a core facility that offers its
clientele seamless access to qualitative and quantitative analysis for a
diverse range of molecules for their research across multiple platform
technologies and molecular scales. By coordinating three key platform
technologies (X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and Mass
Spectrometry) across the departments and offering them as an integrated
portal, it is envisioned that synergy and collaboration will be maximized
throughout the greater university community.
METRIC will provide the following services:
X-ray crystallography: small molecule and macromolecular crystal
NMR spectroscopy: small molecule and macromolecular solution
structures, protein-ligand interactions, protein dynamics
Mass spectrometry : small molecule identification and structural
analysis, targeted and untargeted metabolomics, proteomics, lipidomics,
glycomics, mass spectrometry imaging.
Education and training: each METRIC Lead Research Scientist will
provide appropriate training to new users, enhance graduate and
undergraduate education opportunities, organize educational materials,
short courses, and workshops to support users, develop standard operating
protocols for specific workflows, and coordinate to host regular forums
for users to interact and share new methods.
