Proteomics approaches are essential to both clinical and basic research to study diseases at protein level and to help understand the underlying mechanisms.

Founded in 2006, PPN mission is to enable academic teams to succeed in their proteomics projects. The platform is open to all research institutes (in France as abroad), clinical departments and the private sector.

PPN is part of SFR Necker, and is part of the network of proteomic plateforms of University of Paris.

The main focus of the platform is the development of innovative translational proteomics approaches to study human disease. The instrumental park of PPN included the recnetly aquired timsTOF Pro mass spectrometer coupled to EvosepOne, dedicated to high throughput analysis and quantification of proteins and a Biolayer interferometry instrument.

Through its activities of service, collaboration and research and development, the PPN offers state of the art technology and expertise to help understanding disease (PTMs, differential and interaction proteomics) and to search for diagnostic/prognostic biomarkers in body fluids by MS (translational and targeted proteomics).
