FT-ICR-MS-Lisboa

A research center exploring biological and biochemical problems at the molecular level through extreme-resolution mass spectrometry

The Fourier-Transform Ion-Cyclotron-Resonance and Structural Mass Spectrometry Laboratory (FT-ICR-MS-Lisboa) is a pioneer research unit specialized in top-down proteomics, structural mass spectrometry and metabolomic fingerprinting. It is a core center of the European Network of
FT-ICR Mass Spectrometry Centers (EU_FT-ICR_MS network)
