ResearcherID: I-9290-2016
G. ScholarID: Cristian (V.A.) Munteanu
Position: Coordinator of IBRA protein chemistry facility (PCF)
Expertise: Analytical and preparative HPLC, nano HPLC, high-resolution mass spectrometry (MS) and tandem MS, computational mass spectrometry (R/Perl/SQL/HTML/CSS scripts or functions development for proteomics data analysis), sample preparation for MS based proteomics analysis, fundamental biochemistry and cell culture methods
Interests: Differential proteomics: investigation of protein-protein interactions in the degradation of misfolded proteins from endoplasmic reticulum in melanoma and their role in MHC class I antigen presentation with a special focus on tyrosinase and tyrosinase related proteins
Discovery proteomics and peptidomics: identification of MHC class I presented epitopes in melanoma and their mechanism of production at the molecular level
Glycoproteomics: investigation of O- and N-linked glycopeptides and glycoproteins with site-specific characterization of the occupancy and glycan heterogeneity
Chemical biology: collaborative projects in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, chemical biology
Thesis Title: Insights into functional interaction proteomics of endoplasmic reticulum associated degradation (ERAD) and antigen presentation in melanoma using mass spectrometry [Abstract]
