The glycosylation profile of human chorionic gonadotropin in pharmaceutical preparations was studied in detail by Max Lebede and revealed an astonishing molecular complexity. Congratulations to successfully finishing your Master Studies of Molecular Biology! More analytical challenges ahead!
Therese Wohlschlager recieved the Fritz-Feigl Award of the Austrian Society of Anaytical Chemistry 2019 for her contributions to the analytical chemistry of glycoproteins. The award was presented by the president of the Society, Wolfgang Buchberger, at the 18th Austrian Chemistry Days, 24 to 27 September, in Linz Austria. Congratulations and well deserved!
On 25 September 2019, former PhD student of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Biosimilar Characterization Luigi Grassi finished his PhD studies with a thesis entitled Synthetic studies towards proteins containing spontaneous post-translational modifications. Congratulations and every success for your future carreer!
A very motivated and hard working team around Wolfgang Esser-Skala and Therese Wohlschlager organized the 17th Austrian Proteomics and Metabolomics Research Symposium in Salzburg. Participants were deeply impressed by the very friendly atmosphere and perfect organization of the meeting. Distinguished invited keynote speakers included Ulrich auf dem Keller (DTU, Denmark), Katja Dettmer-Wilde (University of Regensburg, Germany), Yehia Mechref (Texas Tech University, USA), Lukas Orre (Karolinska Institutet, Sweden), Magnus Palmblad (Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands), Ljiljana Paša-Tolić (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, USA), and Koen Sandra (Research Institute for Chromatography, Belgium). Thanks a lot for joining the Symposium!
Katharina Müller's poster entitled A novel approach for the comparison of selected monoclonal antibody therapeutics by CZE-ESI-MS was awarded a best poster price at the Austrian Proteomics and Metabolomics Research Symposium, taking place in Salzburg, 18–20 September 2019. The award also included a flash presentation during the Junior Session of the Symposium. Congratulations!
On July 15, 2019, Gabriele Gadermaier's Habilitation Thesis entitled Structural and Immunological Features of Weed Pollen was awarded with lecturing qualification (Habilitation) in Molecular Biology and Immunology. Congratulations and success in future research and teaching!
Mario Schubert's and colleagues' study into protein gluconoylation by denaturing NMR has been published in the Journal of Biomolecular NMR. Another convincing example of our multidisciplinary approach to protein biochemistry involving NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, structural biology, and bioorganic chemistry.
