Olsen Group (Mass Spectrometry for Quantitative Proteomics)

The Olsen group at CPR was established in 2009 and is headed by professor and group leader Jesper V. Olsen.

Research area

Quantitative, high- resolution mass spectrometry based  proteomics is the major scientific focus area for the Olsen Group. Research in the Olsen Group is conducted with substantial emphasis on mass spectrometric technology developments and biological applications.

Research focus

The group has a long-standing interest in applying the proteomics technology developed to systems-wide analyses of dynamic post-translational modifications (e.g. phosphorylation, ubiquitination, acetylation and glycosylation) that regulate cell signal transduction pathways. In particular, we are continuously developing the phospho-proteomics technology with the aim to be more robust, reproducible, and rapid.

The group is also actively developing and applying large-scale quantitative interaction proteomics screens using high-resolution mass spectrometry as the read-out. 

The Olsen Group is headed by Professor Jesper V. Olsen and currently consists of five post-doctoral fellows, five PhD students, three research assistants and two technicians.
