Frank Witzmann

Indiana University School of Medicine - Lafayette United States of America

Dr. Witzmann is the Scientific Director of Proteomics and Professor of Physiology at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He has been involved in proteomics for nearly 30 years (before the term was coined), applying global protein expression analyses in various research paradigms. He currently directs the use of mass spectrometry–based proteomic approaches in a broad range of collaborative projects where both narrowly focused and comprehensive protein expression profiling and post-translational modification characterization are used to investigate the mechanistic molecular underpinnings of renal pathologies, cardiovascular disease, and biomarker discovery in various conditions. He has published more than 170 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters and served as a reviewer for many funding agencies.
