ICASE is a joint venture between three of the top measurement science institutions in the world:
Purdue University, Indiana University and the University of Notre Dame.
Researchers at Indiana University report in a recent publication in Journal of the American Chemical Society that the trimeric spike protein of the SARS CoV-2 virus is differentially glycosylation. Using the technique of Charge Detection Mass Spectrometry pioneered at IU, Professors Martin Jarrold, David Clemmer and co-workers have revealed an unusual feature relating to glycosylation of the spike protein - a finding that simply would not be possible using conventional bottom-up proteomics studies.
Professor Rebecca Whelan and co-workers have reported recent findings in a cover article in The Analyst detailing isolation of a key biomarker for ovarian cancer, CA125, from ascites fluid. CA125 helps cancer evade the immune system and is a clinically significant biomarker of ovarian cancer. Read more
