OHSU and the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash., have formed the OHSU-PNNL Northwest Co-Laboratory for Integrated ‘Omics. This partnership allows both parties to share their research programs and leading-edge technology for biological mass spectrometry to pursue disease markers for new therapies. In essence, the two entities are working together to answer some of the world’s most complex biomedical questions and accelerate discovery.
Through a memorandum of understanding, the institutions have formed the co-laboratory to expand existing individual collaborations and provide enhanced access to state-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation and technical expertise. One benefit? A streamlined workflow, which is critical as the dual lab sets to work on several experiments related to developmental origins of health and disease, as well as stroke, later this year. This new initiative builds on the strong partnership of OHSU and PNNL and builds on work from the School of Medicine and the OHSU Proteomics Shared Resource.
