Wysocki lab making huge advances in protein characterization with $6.8M NIH grant

Characterizing protein complex structures, their interactions and how they relate to biological functions is key to identifying, preventing and treating disease, but multiple challenges have prevented this from happening on a large scale. To close the gap between the number of protein complex structures currently solved and those that are biomedically relevant, a Resource for Native Mass Spectrometry Guided Structural Biology has been formed at Ohio State under the direction of Vicki Wysocki, professor of chemistry and biochemistry, Ohio Eminent Scholar and director of the Campus Chemical Instrument Center.

The Resource is supported by a $6.8 million P41 grant from the National Institutes of Health, which designates the initiative as a national Biomedical Technology Research Resource.
