KEYNOTE INVITED SPEAKERS
Bernd Wollscheid is a Professor for Chemical and Systems Biology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich, Switzerland and Head of the D-HEST BioMedical Proteomics Platform (BMPP). After studying chemistry in Freiburg and Boston he obtained his PhD in Molecular Immunology from the Max-Planck Institute for Immunobiology. His postdoctoral research took him to the Institute of Systems Biology in Seattle where he pioneered and applied chemoproteomic technologies towards the identification and quantification of proteins and their interaction partners. Now at the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology and the Department of Health Sciences and Technology at ETH Zürich the Wollscheid group is focusing on biomedical research bridging the gap in understanding the genotype to phenotype transition via detailed analysis of the proteotype.
