Successful grant collaborations

Long term facility collaborator Dr Heidi Fuller of Keele University & RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital, has recently secured funding from Great Ormand Street Hospital.  In collaboration with the BSRC mass spectrometry facility, this project ‘Therapy development for children with motor neuron disease’ will utilise SWATH to identify proteins involved in Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and ultimately identify and screen chemical and biological regulors of the proteins expression.  Congratulations to Heidi on her successful application and we look forward to being involved in this exciting research.

Dr Simon Powis of the University of St Andrews medical school has been awarded a grant from Breast Cancer Now to study tumour associated antigens revelent to immunotherapy. In collaboration with Dr Sally Shirran, funding was secured to identify the EV MHC class peptidome from breast cancer cells utilising nLCMSMS.
