Core Policies


IUSM Proteomics core policies

Confidentiality Policy
The IUSM proteomics core does not share data or project information without the consent of the principle investigator(s) involved in the project.

Conflict Resolution Policy
Any concerns about service or data obtained from the proteomics core should be referred to the Core Director. We are happy to discuss any differences in opinion regarding protocols used, billing issues, authorship disagreement, etc. In the event that a resolution to the conflict cannot be reached between the Principle Investigator(s) and the Core Director, the Proteomics Advisory Board can be consulted. The current members of the IUSM Proteomics core advisory board are:




Clark D. Wells, PhD

Associate Professor (chair)

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

AJ Baucum, PhD

Assistant Professor

Biology (IUPUI) / Stark Neuroscience Institute

Johnathan Tune, PhD


Cellular & Integrative Physiology

Mark R. Kelley, PhD



Sophie Paczesny, MD, PhD



Lindsey Mayo, PhD

Associate Professor


Gustavo Arrizabalaga, PhD


Pharmacology and Toxicology

Yunlong Liu, PhD


Medical and Molecular Genetics, Director of CMG

Cost Recovery / Payment Policy
All CTSI core users are asked to include an account number with their sample submission form. Billing is performed at least once a month following completion of the majority of the work (typically including sample preparation, LC-MS/MS analysis, and initial database search analysis). External (non-CTSI) users should contact the Core Director to discuss payment options prior to sample submission.

Prioritization of Work Policy
Samples are processed on a “first come, first served” basis. Some samples require multiple sample preparation steps which may delay their analysis on the mass spectrometer. Slight changes in the “first come, first served” order of analysis are performed to optimize instrument usage and to fit with staffing. 

Policy Regarding Publications and Grant Writing.
All work per formed in or by our facility should be acknowledged in publications. Please add the following statement to the acknowledgments: "Mass spectrometry (or other services/support) was provided by the Indiana University School of Medicine Proteomics Core Facility". For projects that include novel method development, co-authorship may be warranted. For projects that include significant manuscript writing, figure production, and/or data interpretation beyond general method write-ups, co-authorship should be granted. A PDF version of all publications that include data generate by the IUSM Proteomics Core Facility is requested. A notice of grants awarded should also be shared with us when appropriate. This will assist the core in documenting successful activities and aids in gaining funding to maintain and upgrade the resources in the core.
