• The Moritz Lab

    Institute for Systems Biology

Our Goal

The goal of the Moritz Lab is to bring together scientific expertise from diverse areas such as biology, chemistry, proteomics, physics, bioinformatics, and statistics, to enhance and develop innovative proteomic technologies and apply them to biological questions relevant to human health and wellbeing.

Our Focus

The use of blood and tissue samples to look for biomarkers that indicate the presence or stage of a disease presents many challenges. For example, proteins in the blood have an extraordinary range of abundances, with common proteins like albumin billions of times more abundant than trace proteins like cytokines.
