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). 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). 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. The core research interests of the group are signal transduction, biomarker discovery and metabolic diseases. Another focus is the development of mass spectrometric and proteomic methods for its application in biological and clinical context. The group is also developing computer algorithms for automated detection and quantification of peptides. Ultimately, our vision is to transfer the proteomics knowledge into clinics for predictive, diagnostic and preventive purposes. We are a highly collaborative team and involved in a large number of projects including MICROB-PREDICT, Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research projects, German-Israeli project (DIP), CLINSPECT-M, Munich Heart Alliance, and Digimed Bayern.
