Post-translational modifications of proteins are critical for their biological functions and biophysical properties. Glycosylation – modification of proteins with complex sugar groups – is particularly complex, dynamic, and important. I will present recent work on the development and use of glyco/proteomic analytical approaches for measuring the complexity of glycosylation and other post-translational modifications at systems levels to understand their dynamics and roles in fundamental biology, virology, and fermented beverages. 


Ben Schulz is a Professor in Biochemistry in SCMB, with research interests in diverse applications of molecular systems biology. He graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering and Science from The University of Queensland, after which he joined Proteome Systems, an Australian biotechnology company. He moved to the ETH Zurich in Switzerland for his doctoral studies, and then returned to the School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences as a post-doctoral research fellow, and is now a teaching and research academic. 

About School research seminars

Seminars cover all aspects of chemistry and molecular biosciences and are delivered by visiting national and international academics. PhD completion seminars are also incorporated into the program.

Seminars are usually held in person and via zoom. All are welcome to attend.
