  • Proteomics Service Manager; PhD
  • +47 23073037

Maria started as the Head engineer at PCF in 2010. Before that, she performed her PhD thesis at the Department of Immunology, University of Oslo with topic ‘Peptidylarginine deiminase 4 and citrullination in Rheumatoid arthritis’. She has more than ten years of experience in high-resolution nanoLC-MS/MS, and is experienced with most LC-MS/MS based proteomics workflows.
