The European Union has awarded 10 million euro to a consortium of eighteen European research groups in the field of proteomics research throughout Europe. One of these eighteen partners is the SciLifeLab Cell Profiling unit, offering spatial mapping of proteins at high resolution in cells and tissues. The European Proteomics Initiative Consortium (EPIC-XS), funded as part of the Horizon 2020 Work programme, is coordinated by Albert Heck, professor of biomolecular mass spectrometry and proteomics at Utrecht University. The project started on the first of January 2019 and will run for a period of four years.
Starting in the spring of 2019, requests for access to the units can be submitted via www.epic-xs.eu.
