Protein Purification and Characterization Facility
A CSU Specialized Facility dedicated to the fabrication, purification, solution-state characterization and crystal structure determination of proteins. Offering instrumentation, training, consulting and assistance to the research community.
Dr. Uma Muthurajan, Director
A facility to provide access to analytical ultracentrifugation & circular dichroism spectroscopy for solution-state analysis of proteins, nucleic acids and macromolecular complexes.
Dr. Hataichanok (Mam) Scherman, Director
A fully equipped facility to express recombinant proteins in eukaryotic and prokaryotic systems. Custom strategies and state-of-the-art instrumentation for small to large scale purifications.
Dr. Mark van der Woerd, Director
Temperature controlled crystallization room, rotating anode x-ray generator, 2 image plate detectors, and computational facility for elucidating protein and nucleic acid structure at atomic resolution.
The protein facilities are open to all CSU faculty staff and students as well as to the external scientific community. Training is offered for those who wish to work independently. Fee-for-services instrumentation and data analysis is also available. Please contact the appropriate Director to discuss specific requirements and costs for your project.
