Areas & Technology
The Advanced Clinical Biosystems Research Institute at Smidt Heart Institute embraces a range of disciplines that includes cardiology, cancer, gastroenterology, regenerative medicine and urology. The driving force behind this research is proteomics, which utilizes biology, metabolomics, biochemistry and genetics to analyze the structure, functions and interactions of proteins in determining pathways causing disease.
Unlocking secrets of proteins requires powerful technology. The institute operates seven modern mass spectrometers, which identify the chemical constitution of proteins through the separation of ions by their various masses and charges, along with other leading-edge instruments. These include:
