Collaboration ● Research ● Discovery

The Center for Biomedical Mass Spectrometry Research (MS Center), established in 2017 at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), integrates state-of-the-art instrumentation, bioinformatics, and scientists with expertise in mass spectrometry to support a wide range of study designs through collaborative interactions. In some cases, we can assist investigators complete simple projects using predefined fee-for-service workflows.This unique collaborative model enables us to offer a broader range of customized analysis types beyond what you might find in a typical “core” facility.

Designated as a “Red” Center, we actively promote basic and translational research programs across nearly every basic science and clinical department at MCW. Beyond catalyzing interdisciplinary research, we are also committed to fostering technology development and providing education regarding the applications of mass spectrometry in biomedical research. 

Due to the large number of investigators we coordinate with, we DO NOT schedule consultations via email or phone. Please use the online App (click on the “Schedule Appointment” button to right of this screen) to schedule your appointment to discuss a new or ongoing project or a grant application.

Jong-In Park, PhD
Professor of Biochemistry

"The MS Center at MCW has been greatly instrumental in advancing our study of mortalin in cancer. In collaboration with the MS Center, we were able to catalogue mortalin interactome in cells and profile the metabolites affected in tumor cells upon mortalin targeting. With this information, our research addresses more advanced hypothesis to reveal the role of mortalin in cancer." 


Cheryl Stucky, PhD
Professor of Cell Biology, Neurobiology, and Anatomy

"Through our collaboration with the MS Center, we have advanced our research in the field of touch, in relation to our daily activities, how touch communicates with our environment, and how we sense touch. We discovered a host of novel endogenous molecules that are released from the skin in response to tactile stimulation. These molecules provide exciting leads for our next experiments in which we hope to uncover novel signaling mechanisms between skin cells and sensory neurons and that allow us to mediate a myriad of our social interactions"



Modern applications of mass spectrometry are vast, often requiring complex study designs. That’s why all projects begin with a free consultation with Dr. Buchberger, Associate Director, to discuss your project goals, apt workflows, and budget.
