Johannes Graumann (Group Leader)
Telephone Extension: 1760
After receiving his Diplom (M.S. equivalent) in biology at the University of Konstanz
, Johannes moved for his Ph.D. in biochemistry to the lab of Ray(mond) J. Deshaies at the California Institute of Technology
. When Ray started to increasingly use mass spectrometry–based proteomics in his exploration of the ubiquitin/proteasome system, Johannes rose to the challenge and worked for a one year apprenticeship as a visiting collaborator in John R. Yates’s lab at The Scripps Research Institute
. Returning from there to Caltech, he locally implemented the entire Yates lab workflow to contribute to a plethora of projects in various fields under investigation at the institute.
During his postdoctoral education, Johannes received further proteomics training in the lab of Matthias Mann at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry
, concentrating on stable isotope labeling with amino acids in cell culture (SILAC) in embryonic stem cells and real time adaptation of parameters during liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS2
) data acquisition.
After a six year stint at the Weill Cornell Medicine branch campus in Qatar
, where he concentrated on the exploration of mesenchymal stem cells as promising agents in cell–based reconstructive medicine as well as affinity proteomics–based blood plasma analysis, he returned to Germany and joined the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research, where his work concentrates on reproducible analysis and reporting in the context OMICS data sets as well as functional membrane proteomics.
