Mass Spectrometry Imaging Core Awarded CPRIT Grant

A CPRIT grant has been awarded to build a High Performance Mass Spectrometry Imaging Core Facility that will develop novel methods to provide detailed molecular information for tissue imaging. State of the art mass spectrometry equipment will be purchased to utilize both MALDI and DESI ionization sources with ultra-violet photodissociation MS/MS fragmentation for cancer research. Jennifer Brodbelt is the P.I., working in partnership with Livia Eberlin and Maria Person. The facility is expected to begin operations in the spring of 2020.
