The Center for Proteomics and Metabolomics (CPM) forms the main expertise center and technology focus area for (clinical) proteomics and metabolomics in the LUMC. The key technologies are liquid separations (liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis), gas chromatography, mass spectrometry (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Our main field of expertise is the application of these technologies in clinical research.
The CPM houses MS- and NMR-based technology and expertise, distributed over 5 groups: proteomics, glycomics, metabolomics, MS-imaging, and bioinformatics. The CPM has the ambition to continuously push technology and methodology forward while maintaining reliable and efficient support and collaboration with our research partners. We strive to deepen research collaborations with academic groups, including national research centers and platforms, to develop, implement and apply new analytical tools, biological model systems and informatics methods. In addition, we pursue collaborations with industry to apply and adapt the latest state-of-the-art technology in robotic sample preparation, liquid separation methods, mass spectrometry and NMR, within the scope of biopharmaceutical development and biomarker discovery. We train and educate students and scientists within the LUMC, as well as bachelors and masters from outside.
