The Proteomics & Metabolomics shared resource at Fred Hutch provides support for mass spectrometry-based proteomics and metabolomics research. With advanced instrumentation and a highly trained staff, the core offers consultation and services in sample preparation, sample separation, data collection and data analysis. Our clients include scientists within the Fred Hutch/University of Washington/Seattle Children's Cancer Consortium and at research institutions around the country.

Training Opportunities

We offer proteomics and metabolomics services to researchers throughout the Fred Hutch/University of Washington Cancer Consortium as well as outside institutions and companies. All core instruments are solely operated by our staff. While we operate on a fee-for-service model, we take a very collaborative approach in working with users of the core. The best results occur when we understand the goal of the project, agree upon the methods, agree upon the sample preparation and data collection strategy, and have a strong vision of the data analysis that will be needed.
