Trajan Scientific and Medical with Monash University would like to announce a collaboration for the development of an HDX training centre at Monash University's Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility (MPMF). This collaboration will provide the university with access to a Trajan HDX system and allow Trajan to provide HDX training to the proteomics community in the region.
Hydrogen Deuterium Exchange Mass Spectrometry (HDX-MS) is a powerful technique of ever-increasing importance that provides insight into protein dynamics. HDX-MS studies can be used to connect structure, behaviour and function of a protein, between proteins and drugs, development of life-saving vaccines, as well as the cause and potential resolution of protein misfolding diseases.
In harnessing the power of HDX-MS, insight into the key areas of scientific research like intelligent drug design and development of Biosimilar therapeutics: using HDX-MS can produce better medicines, faster and at a lower price. Day to day, HDX-MS can be used to investigate life-threatening diseases that come from proteins being unstable in the body and speed up medical research by making them more stable in the laboratory too.
