Research Cores

The Pasarow Mass Spectrometry Laboratory

The PMSL is an analytical resource for the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative and serves as a core mass spectrometry laboratory for the entire UCLA campus and beyond. It also serves as a teaching venue to provide instruction in analytical chemistry. Teaching others, most importantly the next generation of scientists, is a crucial role the facility fulfills.  The work in the laboratory can be broadly broken into two components: these are work involving small molecules (metabolites, drugs including cannabinoids, and metabolomics), and proteins including both top-down and bottom-up proteomics.
