Eight million euros for European Network led by Albert Heck

Friday, March 04, 2011

Scientific director of the Netherlands Proteomics Centre (NPC), professor Albert Heck, has been charged with coordinating PRIME-XS, a European consortium on proteomics. The European Union has made eight million euros available for this initiative.

By working more closely together, the European researchers hope to determine the role played by each protein in the human body. More specifically, when it is known which protein is involved in a particular disease,
it will be fairly easy to identify this disease in a patient.
