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.

25.11.2022: New funding

We received DFG funding for another four years to investigate microplastic effects on proteomes of several organisms within the CRC 1357 Microplastics.

23.09.2022: Poster award for Youli Stepanov

Youli Stepanov (LAFUGA Proteomics) received a poster award for his poster: “Dexamethasone is a regulator of human testicular peritubular cells” presented during the annual meeting of the German Society for Andrology. Congratulations Youli!

1.10.2021: Carl-Gustav Groth Xeno Prize for Arne Hinrichs and Evamaria Riedel

Dr. Arne Hinrichs (LMU, Center for Innovative Medical Models) and Evamaria Riedel (LMU, LAFUGA Proteomics) are the winner of the Carl-Gustav Groth Xeno Prize for their paper " Growth hormone receptor knockout to reduce the size of donor pigs for preclinical xenotransplantation studies.". This prize of US $7,000 is jointly sponsored by the International Xenotransplantation Association (IXA) and the publisher of Xenotransplantation (Wiley). The Xeno Prize is awarded to the first author(s) of the best paper published in the journal Xenotransplantation each calendar year. Congratulations Eva and Arne!

1.3.2020: New EU funded project

Within the EU funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network “DohART-NET” we received a grant for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR). The ESR will investigate effects of maternal diabetes at the proteome level using transgenic pig models for diabetes and pre-diabetes developed by the Wolf lab.

1.1.2019: New DFG funded project

Within the SFB 1357 “MICROPLASTICS: Understanding the mechanisms and processes of biological effects, transport and formation (Speaker Prof. Laforsch; University of Bayreuth)” we successfully applied for a grant. In our subproject, we will study effects of microplastics on the model organism Daphnia at the proteome level. We are happy to contribute to the solution of the important and socially relevant issue of microplastics in the environment.

1.1.2018: New QExactive HF-X mass spectrometer

A new high performance mass spectrometer was recently installed at the LAFUGA proteomics unit and is now fully operational. The recently released "Q Exactive HF-X" is a state-of-the-art fast scanning high resolution mass spectrometer with significantly improved sensitivity, facilitating in-depth proteome analysis even of of highly complex biological samples.
