Profile of Mr Marcus Bantscheff
Marcus Bantscheff graduated in Chemistry at the University of Konstanz and obtained his PhD degree from the University of Rostock working with Prof. Glocker on structure-function correlation of bacterial response regulator proteins utilizing mass spectrometric and protein chemistry methods. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Proteome Center in Rostock, Marcus was involved in setting up a proteomics unit and focused on the analysis of synovial fluids and tissue samples derived from rheumatoid arthritis patients and CIA mice. At Cellzome since 2002 he led the proteomics team, and joined GSK upon Cellzome’s acquisition in 2012 where he currently serves as Senior Scientific Director and Senior Fellow leading the proteomics/metabolomics platforms within Functional Genomics Department. Marcus’ work focuses on the development and application of proteomics and chemical biology approaches to characterize targets, disease mechanisms and mechanism-of-action of bioactive molecules. He is an inventor on several patents including Cellzome’s Kinobeads™ technology, has co-authored more than 80 publications (h-index 54, Google Scholar), and serves as a reviewer for reputed journals and funding bodies. His research awards include the Life Science price of the German Society for Mass Spectrometry, in 2016 and the MCP Lectureship, in 2019.
