Promotion: Michael Hoopmann Becomes Senior Research Scientist
Congratulations to Dr. Michael Hoopmann, of the Moritz Lab, who has been promoted to Senior Research Scientist. His research is focused on proteomics technology and methods development, having been trained in both instrumentation and software data analysis, with particular focus on high-resolution mass spectrometry. His current interests are in the development of advanced algorithms for discovery-based proteomics. He is the developer of the Kojak algorithm, a versatile, open-source software application for the discovery of protein-protein interactions through shotgun-based mass spectrometry. Dr. Hoopmann is also a contributor to the Trans-Proteomic Pipeline suite of software solutions for mass spectrometry data analysis.
