Prof. Dr. Matthias Mann is a pioneer, eminent researcher and global authority in the field of proteomics. With his research teams at the Max Planck Institute in Munich, Germany and at Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, Prof. Mann progressively turned LC/MS into a highly effective tool for characterizing the totality of proteins in an organism or even a single cell. With more than 700 publications in proteomics and bioinformatics, Prof. Mann achieved a h-index ranking of over 220 and Google Scholar lists him with more than 230,000 scientific citations.
From his research group in Munich originated in 2016 PreOmics, a company commercializing sample prep sets and EVOSEP, a company commercializing protein analysis equipment.
Current interests include machine learning with large proteome data sets; and the standardization of routine LC/MS workflows to bring proteomics into clinical and diagnostic labs.
