- Glycomics and glycoproteomics
PhD student at the center for proteomics and metabolomics (CPM).
Florent Clerc is a PhD student at the Center for Proteomics and Metabolomics under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Manfred Wuhrer, in the field of glycomics and glycoproteomics. His research projects focus on the glycosylation of plasma proteins as potential biomarkers of diseases and inflammation by mass spectrometry.
The main technics used for this research are HILIC purification, large sample sets management, MALDI-TOF MS, LC-MS, analytical softwares and statistical analysis.
Preparing and handling large sample sets is a great challenge, thus part of the time of the project is spent on the development of robotized methods, analytical tools and automated data processing to increase the throughput of the analysis.
The research projects are funded by the European project Inflammatory Bowel Disease Biomarkers Programme (IBD-BIOM)
