Martin Simon Kalteis

Simon Kalteis is a physician, studied medicine at Innsbruck, Austria and Heidelberg and joined ATB in 2013 to study HPV genome methylation in oropharyngeal cancer.

He is interested in epigenetic regulation mechanisms of HPV oncogene expression and DNA-methylation-based biomarkers for providing patients with targeted therapies.

Apart from optimizing pyrosequencing assays, everything that is related to bioinformatics manages to catch his attention. He loves debugging R code (his own, mostly…) and is managing ATB’s IT in a mixed Windows/Linux environment including a ZFS-based storage system.
