Bert Poolman is professor in biochemistry and program director of the Centre for Synthetic Biology. His research focuses on the elucidation of the mechanisms by which signals are transduced and small molecules are translocated across cellular membranes. Cells are reengineered for the production of correctly folded membrane proteins, and methods are developed to reconstitute complex molecular assemblies in synthetic membranes and to analyze their functional and structural properties. The in vitro
I'm Post-Doc in the lab of Prof. Becher at the University of Greifswald. I'm working on the relative and absolute protein quantitation using gel-based and mass-spectrometric methods.
