University Medicine Greifswald
Greifswald University has long experience in functional proteome analysis.The junior research group "Applied Proteomics" of the ZIK FunGene lead by Dr Dipl. Ing. Frank Schmidt started on April, 1st in 2011. The group is integrated in the department of Functional Genomics lead by Professor Dr Uwe Völker. Its scientific project concerns infection-related in vivo topics. Major aim of the new junior research group is to further develop proteome-specific high resolution methods by means of cell culture and mouse models. Thus, obtained results regarding interactions between pathogenic bacteria and their host cells will be placed into modern clinical diagnostics for identification of potential biomarkers of diagnostic and prognostic value.
