The IU School of Medicine Center for Proteome Analysis does not share data or project information without the consent of the principle investigator(s) involved in the project.
Any concerns about service or data obtained from the proteomics core should be referred to the center director. Differences in opinion regarding protocols used, billing issues, authorship disagreement, etc. may be discussed. In the event that a resolution to the conflict cannot be reached between the principle investigator(s) and the center director, the proteomics advisory board can be consulted. The current members of the IU School of Medicine proteomics advisory board are:
|Clark D. Wells, PhD||Associate Professor (chair)||Biochemistry and Molecular Biology|
|AJ Baucum, PhD||Associate Professor||Pharmacology and Toxicology/Stark Neuroscience Institute|
|Peter Hollenhorst, PhD||Professor||Biochemistry and Molecular Biology|
|Mark R. Kelley, PhD||Professor||Pediatrics/IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center|
|Amelia K. Linnemann, PhD||Associate Professor||Pediatrics, Indiana Diabetes Research Center|
|Lindsey Mayo, PhD||Associate Professor||Pediatrics, Wells Center for Pediatric Research|
|Gustavo Arrizabalaga, PhD||Professor||Pharmacology and Toxicology, Biology of Intracellular Pathogens Working Group|
|Yunlong Liu, PhD||Professor||Medical and Molecular Genetics, Director of CMG/CCBB|
All CTSI core users are asked to include an account number with their sample submission form. Billing is performed at least once a month following completion of the majority of the work (typically including sample preparation, LC-MS/MS analysis, and initial database search analysis). External (non-CTSI) users should contact Mandy Bittner to discuss payment options prior to samples submission.
Prioritization of Work
Samples are processed on a “first come, first served” basis. Some samples require multiple sample preparation steps which may delay their analysis on the mass spectrometer. Slight changes in the “first come, first served” order of analysis are performed to optimize instrument usage and to fit with staffing.
Publications and Grant Writing
All work performed in or by the Center for Proteome Analysis should be acknowledged in publications. Please add the following statement to the acknowledgments: "Mass spectrometry (or other services/support) was provided by the Indiana University School of Medicine Center for Proteome Analysis."
For projects that include experimental design, novel method development, and/or novel data analysis, co-authorship may be warranted. For projects that include novel method development, co-authorship may be warranted. For projects that include significant manuscript writing, figure production, and/or data interpretation beyond general method write-ups, co-authorship should be granted. A PDF version of all publications that include data generated by the Center for Proteome Analysis is requested. A notice of grants awarded should also be shared when appropriate. This will assist the core in documenting successful activities and aids in gaining funding to maintain and upgrade the resources in the core.
