Waters has welcomed the Proteomics Core Facility at the Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, North Carolina, USA, into its Centers of Innovation programme. The Waters Centers of Innovation programme recognizes and supports the efforts of scientists facilitating breakthroughs in health and life science research, food safety, environmental protection, sports medicine and many other areas.

In a ceremony at Duke University, the company recognized associate research Professor M. Arthur Moseley, director of proteomics, for his research and support of ongoing research at the School of Medicine to bring about improvements in human health. “With the Proteomics Core Facility our intention was always to provide the highest quality data anywhere in the world for the least expensive price,” said Professor Moseley. “My team and I have had the opportunity to work with some of the sharpest biomedical researchers in the field working on an incredible variety of projects. With the liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry instrumentation we have today, we can ask much more meaningful questions, questions relating to the fundamentals of biology, how proteins interact, how protein expression levels change as a function of a disease state or as a function of drug administration. These technologies put Duke ahead of the curve when it comes to commercially available state-of-the-art proteomic technologies.”
