Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry

MISSION STATEMENT

The Boston University Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry joins three basic sciences research units under one roof. Four members of Boston University School of Medicine faculty, associated with the Center, develop and apply high-end instrumentation and methods; these faculty collaborate extensively with other biomedical researchers at BUSM and elsewhere. In addition to its extensive direct funding from NIH and other sources, the Center provides analytical platforms for interdisciplinary NIH grants for a large number of BUSM researchers.

The primary goal of the Center is to develop and disseminate methods and instrumentation to meet emerging bioanalytical needs; the research is investigator-initiated and is not intended to provide a core laboratory function. Another goal is to educate the next generation of researchers in cutting-edge instrumentation, methods and technologies.

The Center is the home of three BUSM laboratories that have received significant funding from Federal and non-governmental sources:
