Proteins at Work
large scale analysis of proteins
and their interactions in relation to biological functions


Proteins At Work will provide access to state-of-the-art proteomics technology, equipment and expertise to researchers in the Life Sciences from academia and industry.

Four proteomics facilities

Proteins At Work consists of a core facility at Utrecht University, with smaller out-stations at the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI), the Erasmus Medical Centre Rotterdam and the University Medical Centre Utrecht. The profiles of the four facilties will give you a first impression of our expertise and facilities. If you have:

  • More general questions about our facilities or conditions of joint projects, please contact the our project office.
  • Specific questions about our technologies, please contact the responsible facility manager directly.

Utrecht University Facility
The facility in Utrecht, an expert centre for state-of-the-art proteomics analysis, will develop and implement innovative mass spectrometric methods for efficient and detailed characterisation of biomolecules in relation to their biological function. Scientific focus ranges from single protein identifications to the analysis of complex, whole-cell lysate, samples and determination of posttranslational modifications.

Erasmus Medical Centre Rotterdam Facility
The facility will be embedded within the Erasmus MC Proteomics Center (part of the Department of Biochemistry). It will offers proteomic and mass spectrometric services for the Dutch academic research community. All projects will be on a collaborative basis. Researchers can consult the experienced staff on study design and data interpretation. The facility also develops proteomics methodologies based on mass spectrometry and protein separation techniques for qualitative and quantitative analysis of (sub)proteomes. In addition, it will provide mass spectrometry and proteomics services for the local scientific community as well as for external researchers.

University Medical Centre Utrecht Facility
The facility in UMC Utrecht will provide state-of-the-art proteomics methods to aid fundamental, translational and clinical research into proteins, protein modifications and biomarkers relevant for health and disease.

Netherlands Cancer Institute Facility
The facility at the Dutch Cancer Institute will house two high-resolution LC-MS setups, optimized for biomolecular analysis. Main focus of the facility is state-of-the-art proteomics research on a wide range of cancer related biological processes. Scientific focus ranges from single protein identifications, protein-protein interaction networks and the analysis of complex, whole-cell lysate samples, as well as the determination of post-translational modifications.


Proteins At Work is a programme of the Netherlands Proteomics Centre and is made possible by NWO and Utrecht University
