Research Department "Proteomics and Signal Transduction"
Mass Spectrometry, Systems Biology, Bioinformatics, Cancer
The department of Proteomics and Signal Transduction is headed by Prof. Matthias Mann and was established in 2005. Matthias Mann is the highest cited German researcher with an h-index of more than 200 and more than 200,000 citations ( google scholar). The Mann lab is a leader in the technology and application of mass spectrometry-based proteomics and has been at the forefront of the field for over two decades. In addition to his group at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Matthias Mann is the director of the proteomics program at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (NNF-CPR) in Copenhagen where he also leads the ( clinical proteomics group). We are a highly collaborative team and involved in a large number of international projects including the MSmed EU project, the ERC Synergy Grant ToPAG, Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research projects, and Digimed Bayern.
