Abdul R. Asif
Abdul R. Asif is professor of molecular medicine at the Institute of Clinical Chemistry, University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG). Beside this at the Central UMG-Laboratories, he is responsible for various diagnostic units for patient care. Prof. Asif has extensive experience in the field of clinical proteomics, in particular translational proteomics, differential proteomics, target elucidation and characterization of posttranslational modifications, preanalytics issues in clinical proteomics. His research focuses on identifying novel molecular targets of drugs, protein-protein and protein–drug interactions, ChIP-o-proteomics, immuno-proteomics for identification of new diagnostic and vaccine targets, use of proteomics tools and techniques to understand the physiology and pathophysiology of disease. His research group is collaborating with national and international partners in wide range of clinical and molecular medicine research topics. His teaching activities encompass a range of clinical proteomics, molecular medicine topics and investigative diagnostics. He has authored and co-authored more than 65 peer reviewed articles and a number of book contributions in the field of clinical proteomics and molecular medicine.
