Mission

Our group focuses on the identification and quantitation of membrane components and immunological active biomolecules. We are specialized in the analysis of lipids, glyco-conjugates, and cell wall components. We aim to reveal signaling cascades and biosynthetic pathways on the molecular level, which are altered due to inflammation and infection. For that, we develop and apply OMICs workflows and methods for structural characterization. In our RG, we unite competences in mass spectrometry (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) approaches enabling in-depth studies of metabolic processes in biological model system as well as clinical samples.
