How to speed up protein analysis

Unlike the conventional approach to drug discovery, which concentrates on inhibiting or activating proteins, targeted protein degradation (TPD) provides a more accurate and efficient method for altering cellular pathways.

TPD, however, encounters many challenges that must be addressed for it to reach its full potential, such as reducing the bottleneck of quantitative protein analysis.

During the upcoming webinar, the Boehringer Ingelheim team will present recent real-world TPD project examples, followed by a detailed analysis. The webinar will also include insights into device and consumable management, as well as optimized assay setups for increasing protein analysis throughput.

Andrea Stingu

Lab Scientist at Boehringer Ingelheim

In early 2020, Andrea started her role as a master's student at Boehringer Ingelheim in the Department of Cancer Cell Signaling. After obtaining her Master's degree, she continued in her role at Boehringer Ingelheim as a dedicated laboratory scientist. She is particularly interested in validating new targets as well as testing and implementing innovative techniques.

Simple Western protein analysis has thus far helped her make important project decisions. These include assessing protein expression, protein stability, and the effect of compounds. In her spare time, Andrea enjoys cooking and baking for her friends, dancing, and handcrafting.

Johannes Wachter

MTA/ Technician at Boehringer Ingelheim

After completing his master’s degree in molecular biology at the University of Vienna, with his master’s thesis written at Boehringer Ingelheim, Johannes seized the chance to become a full-time employee at Boehringer Ingelheim and continue his involvement in drug development.

Starting in immune oncology, Johannes ended up working in cancer research five years ago, where he gained his first experience in protein analysis using the Wes system.

In addition to his research work at Boehringer Ingelheim, Johannes enjoys spending time with his family and friends playing board and card games. He also likes being outside—hiking and playing basketball or volleyball.

Teresa Puchner

MTA/ Technician at Boehringer Ingelheim

Teresa has a strong passion for bouldering, cycling, and science. After completing her master’s thesis at Boehringer Ingelheim, she traveled to Southeast Asia, returned to Boehringer Ingelheim, and has been working there for more than five years.

Protein analysis in the context of drug development has always been a significant part of her work. She also enjoys communicating new Wes/Jess opportunities to the relevant users to enhance efficiency in research.
