Our research activity comprises proteomic characterization of large animal disease models for molecular biomedical research (Diabetes, Duchenne muscular dystrophy), proteome analysis during early embryogenesis in mammals and secretome analysis of human testicular peritubular cells (HTPC) in the context of spermatogenesis. We perform holistic as well as targeted proteomic approaches using latest mass spectrometry instrumentation. Read more...

08.03.2024: New Bruker timsTOF HT mass spectrometer installed

A new high-performance mass spectrometer was recently installed and is now fully operational. This state-of-the-art, very fast scanning mass spectrometer with improved sensitivity includes an integrated TIMS (Trapped Ion Mobility Spectrometry) unit. This enables parallel accumulation serial fragmentation (PASEF) of peptide ions, further increasing the speed and number of proteins quantified.
