Manuel Weber

Manuel Weber studied at the University of Applied Science Mannheim and did an exchange research internship at the Memorial University in Newfoundland, Canada where he assisted in the study of the functional and structural charateristics of lung surfactant protein B. During his Bachelor and Master studies he developed methods for the machine learning-aided assessment/ monitoring of fermentation processes via gas-phase ion-mobility spectroscopy and mass spectrometry at the Insitute for Instumental Analytics at the CHARISMA Competence Center Mannheim. In the RTG2467, his PhD project is focusing on the analysis of the parathyroid hormone (PTH). The intrinsically disordered regions are suspected to mediate the formation and release of the functional PTH storage amyloid granules and to increase the signal response of PTH. Manuel uses in vitro fibrillation assays, FRET, in cell NMR, and cross-linking mass spectrometry.
