Prof. Dr. Jürgen Kopitz
After completing my PhD thesis in biochemistry at the University of Tübingen, I worked in several institutions all over the world, including Norway, Japan and Germany, and gained particular expertise in cancer-related biochemical processes. Currently, as the associate professor at ATB, I am leading the glycobiology research group.
My research interests involve the development of a comprehensive understanding of key proteomic and glycomic alterations in tumor cells. To this end my research group uses multifaceted biochemical approaches including mass spectrometry-based proteomics, metabolomic studies, two-dimensional fluorescence difference gel electrophoresis (2D-DIGE) and click-chemistry-based glycomics.
