Gene mutations play an important role in cancer development and progression; however, it is the alterations in proteins encoded by these genes, and consequential reprogramming of metabolism that ultimately drives the aberrant function of cancer cells. The goal of the Core Facility is to support cancer researchers at BCM with state-of-the-art proteomics and metabolomics technologies for discovery of protein and metabolic pathways that underlie important cancer research and clinical problems. Problems include identification of drivers of cancer, therapy resistance mechanisms to enable development of alternatives to combat resistance and novel protein and metabolite targets for drug development...
