This July, OHSU’s Proteomics Shared Resource will be adding a high-resolution mass spectrometer called a Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Fusion. OHSU will be one of the first universities in the world to install this new flagship proteomics platform by Thermo. The Orbitrap Fusion will allow OHSU researchers to incorporate the latest technologies in proteomics including tandem mass tags, iTRAQ, and SILAC multiplexing of complex protein samples, as well as improve their detection and quantitation of protein … Read More

The OHSU Funding Opportunities Database has recently undergone a major upgrade. This database can be used by any OHSU student or employee to search for research grants and fellowships by keyword, rank, residence type, deadline, or sponsor. With this upgrade, the keyword search function has become more robust. Additionally, the database now tracks multiple deadlines for grant programs with more than one deadline per year. The database houses funding opportunities, primarily from non-governmental sources, of … Read More

Every principal investigator wants to build and maintain a lab that attracts and retains outstanding staff members so that your science will be excellent. Juggling this endeavor with all else the PI must do – writing papers, teaching, mentoring, gaining and maintaining funding, creating collaborative and productive relationships with other PIs – can be challenging at best. This 1.5-day course, led by Jennifer Crosby-Meurisse and Rachel Dresbeck, PhD, both from the Office of the Vice … Read More
Each month, the DNA Services Core Facility analyzes the DNA sequencing metadata (read length, quality scores, etc) and gives $54 worth of sequencing credit to the “winner” of the Template Quality Challenge. October’s winner is Anderw Nickerson of the Nan Lab (Biomedical Engineering) for “best plasmid template” with a contiguous read length of 1117 with 971 high quality (>Q20) bases. Congratulations, Andrew! In January, DNA Services sequenced ~1500 templates, including fosmids, BACs or large plasmids, PCR … Read More
