Mason College of Science has 12 departments and units that span the sciences.
Major Research Centers
Our research mission is to produce science that enhances society, creates clear career pathways for students, and enhances economic development in the region and the nation.
Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine (CAPMM)
The Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine (CAPMM) creates new technologies and make basic science discoveries in the field of disease pathogenesis
Apply these discoveries and technologies to create and implement strategies for disease prevention, early diagnosis and individualized therapy. The primary emphasis of our disease research is cancer, but new technologies developed in the center are being applied to a number of important human diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity, as well as liver, ocular, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases.
CAPMM scientists identify and decode the cryptic messages hidden deep inside the human proteome that are critical links to early disease detection and patient-tailored treatment. With clinical investigators from health care organizations and industry partners, the researchers are working to bring this novel laboratory research to the clinical level—the patient’s bedside. The “bench-to-bedside” approach accelerates new tools and technologies into improved, early disease diagnosis, individually tailored therapies, and personalized disease management for patients.
