Roman is an Associate Professor and Senior Group Leader in Clinical Proteomics at the University of Oxford. He leads the Discovery Proteomics Facility at the Target Discovery Institute. He studied Biotechnology at the Technical University Braunschweig and obtained his PhD at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research for the analysis of host-pathogen interactions of Listeria monocytogenes using proteomic methods (2007).
After postdoctoral studies on Il-1 signalling in the laboratory of Professor Sir Philip Cohen in Dundee (Scotland), he started to develop clinical proteomics at the University of Oxford in 2009. Since 2013 he leads the Discovery Proteomics Facility and applies proteomic methods to a multitude of scientific questions. Currently, he focusses his research on the development of high-throughput and spatial proteomics methods and their application to large clinical cohorts and specimen.
In the DeLIVER program Roman will be responsible for the proteomic analysis of the clinical samples (plasma and urine) using state-of-the-art mass spectrometry and high throughput technology.
