Dr. Johannes Graumann joined Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCM-Q) in January 2011 as Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Director of the Proteomics Core. Prior to coming to WCM-Q, he received postdoctoral training at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany, in the laboratory of Professor Matthias Mann (Department of Proteomics and Signal Transduction).

Dr. Graumann's research interests focus on proteomics and embryonic stem cells. His work centers on enhancing current proteomic strategies by intelligent mass spectrometric data acquisition based on real-time data analysis and its application to the field of embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells.
