Research Interest:

Smoler Proteomics Center. Prof. A. Admon heads the Smoler Proteomics Center at the Department of Biology, Technion. The Smoler Proteomics Center gained national recognition and has been expanded into a National "open" Center for proteomics, which was funded by the Ministry of Sciences and Arts. The main thrust of the Smoler Proteomics Center is of microanalysis of protein and peptides on a large scale, now known as proteomics analysis. Main instruments are: HPLCs, 1D, 2D electrophoresis and mass-spectrometry with one MALDI-TOF-TOF, two ESI-ion traps and one Q-TOF.

Tumor specific MHC restricted peptides. Direct biochemical analysis of cancer cell MHC restricted peptides presented on human cancer cells. We perform direct analysis by LC-mass-spectrometry of human cancer MHC class I peptides antigens in order to develop anti-cancer vaccine for human immunotherapy. The main focus peptides specific for small cell lung cancer, ovarian, breast and prostate cancers. The analysis is based mostly on the use of soluble MHC secreted from cancer cells following their transfection with expression vectors for the extra cellular part of the MHC molecules

Pep-Miner a new protein identification and comparison bioinformatics platform developed at the IBM Haifa Research Laboratory by Mr. Ilan Beer.
