Matthias Mann Receives Ernst Schering Prize 2012 - In recognition of new methods for protein analysis

January 18, 2012

Proteins are the molecular building blocks and machinery of cells, and are involved in practically all biological processes. Matthias Mann, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) in Martinsried, is to receive the Ernst Schering Prize 2012 for his seminal work exploring the proteome – the entirety of proteins of an organism. The award comes with 50,000 Euros prize money and will be presented on September 10, 2012 in Berlin. Matthias Mann has revolutionized the methods that are used for the identification and characterization of proteins, by successfully transferring methods of the physical sciences – such as mass spectrometry – to the area of molecular biology.
