Dr. Chien-Yun Lee

Chien-Yun obtained her PhD in Biotechnology at National Chung-Hsing University (Taiwan) in 2018. Her PhD project focused on the structure and protein interactions of PAD enzymes that catalyze a protein modification called citrullination. After learning mass spectrometry-based proteomics during her research visit in 2017, Chien-Yun continued her postdoc research on proteomics in the lab of Prof. Dr. Bernhard Küster (TUM, Germany) in 2018. In spring 2021, Chien-Yun started a young investigator group (Nachwuchsforschungsgruppe) as part of the BMBF-funded research consortium “Clinical Mass Spectrometry Center Munich – CLINSPECT-M”.

Rebecca Meelker González

Rebecca studied chemistry at the University of Zaragoza (Spain) for her bachelor degree. After that, she got her master's degree in medicinal chemistry at the University of Southern Denmark (Denmark), where she worked on developing the workflow to enrich cysteine-containing peptides and glycopeptides in combination with DIA-MS analysis for biomarkers discovery in plasma. Since August 2021, Rebecca joins Chien-Yun’s group at TUM as a PhD student. Her project focuses on the development of biochemical enrichment tools to study citrullination in neuro-diseases.

Be part of us

We are looking for PhD students with a strong background or interest in mass-spectrometry-based proteomics and its application in biomedical research. We provide an international, innovative, and interdisciplinary work environment, with access to state-of-the-art mass spectrometers as well as a range of molecular biology and cell biology techniques.
