Professor of Bioanalytics, Technische Universität, Berlin, Germany
Juri Rappsilber studied chemistry at the Technische Universität Berlin (Germany), Strathclyde University, Glasgow (UK) and with Tom Rapoport, Harvard Medical School, Boston (USA). In 2001, he earned his Ph.D. jointly from EMBL Heidelberg and the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt (Germany) working in the laboratory of Matthias Mann on the mass spectrometric analysis of protein complexes. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense before starting his independent career at IFOM, Milan (Italy) in 2003. In 2006, Juri joined the Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology, University of Edinburgh, twice obtaining Senior Research Fellowships of the Wellcome Trust and since 2010 being Professor of Proteomics. Since 2011, he is Professor of Bioanalytics at the Technische Universität Berlin. Juri combines organic chemistry and computational sciences with advanced mass spectrometry, to expand the frontiers of our understanding of the structural and mechanistic basis of how cells work.
