Welcome to the Centre for Proteome Research at
The University of Liverpool. We are a well equipped lab, led by two academics, addressing a range of challenges in protein mass spectrometry and proteomics as applied to biology and biomedical sciences. The CPR also acts in part as a Shared Research Facility within the University’s Technology Directorate.

Rethinking posters in science
We know this is going to be contentious, but have posters become too overwhelming?

Rat MUPs
First author Lupe (now back in Cordoba). This paper describes the remarkable differences between the gene products of MUPs in rats and mice - notably, the plethora of post-transitional modifications, including phosphorylation. [here]
