Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry

Mass spectrometry enables the characterization of molecules that are present in cells and allows thereby the identification and characterization of proteins and other biomolecules that work together and are involved in cellular processes and in disease.

The group houses an excellent array of state-of-the-art mass spectrometers, combined with extensive protein and peptide separation methods. The group has a world-renown expertise in the analysis of protein-ligand, protein-protein and protein-DNA analysis by mass spectrometry. Therefore, dedicated mass spectrometers and LC methods have been and are developed allowing the analysis of the structure and function of protein machineries

Professor Albert Heck is to receive two international distinctions


Albert Heck, Professor of Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics, is to receive two international distinctions this summer for his work in biochemistry and mass spectrometry: the prestigious Sir Hans Krebs Medal and the Thomson Medal and Prize. ‘It is a wonderful and special honour, especially since they are two completely different awards.’
