The University of Arizona’s shared, state-of-the-art research infrastructure is one way scientists reduce costs while staying ahead of the curve in their respective research programs. These core facilities make available the very latest in specific expertise and technology to UA scientists, and in some cases, academic and industry scientists statewide, nationally and internationally. A $916,000 grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) has expanded the capacity of one of those core facilities—the ArizonaProteomics Consortium—by funding a new mass spectrometer. Dr. George Tsaprailis, a research scientist at the UA College of Pharmacy and BIO5 member, is the consortium’s director.
