The mission of the Proteomics, Metabolomics and Mass Spectrometry Facility is to seed methods, technology, and applications to research labs at Montana State University and affiliated programs. This facility offers a full range of services from single samples to complete shotgun proteomics and metabolomics projects. In addition to providing analytical services, the Facility also operates as an open-access resource with 24/7 availability to researches: users may operate instruments independently for rapid sample analysis and time-sensitive experiments.

Periodic hands-on training sessions are offered by the Facility. The goal of the training modules is to expand facility access to researchers with little previous training in Proteomics, Metabolomics, or Mass Spectrometry. Individual training can also be arranged. The Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Facility is supported with funding from the CoBRE Center for the Analysis of Cellular Mechanisms and Systems Biology and the Murdock Charitable Trust.

 RAIN Metabolomics Pilot Grant Program

Montana INBRE announced a pilot grant program for projects that utilize mass spectrometry-based metabolomics. This program is open to INBRE investigators in Idaho, New Mexico, and Montana. Montana INBRE is making available a total of $10,000 to facilitate data generation to establish feasibility, support research projects, and generate data for publications. Projects may focus on targeted or untargeted metabolomics.
