ERS Short-Term Research Training Fellowship for Christoph Mayr

Christoph Mayr, PhD student in the CPC research group of Dr. Herbert Schiller, has received an European Respiratory Society (ERS) Short-Term Research Training Fellowship. Starting in April, the grant will support a three months lab exchange with the group of Dr. Richard Scheltema (University of Utrecht, The Netherlands), specializing on cross-linking Mass Spectrometry. Together with the Utrecht team, Christoph Mayr will develop and apply `discovery mode´ analysis tools for protein interactions from complex tissue environments in situ. The long term aim of the collaborative project is to establish the first sub-domain resolution protein interaction networks of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and basement membrane from decellularized murine lungs.
