Rudolf Engelke, PhD
Rudolf Engelke is Instrumentation and Data Analysis Specialist at the Proteomics Core of Weill Cornell Medicine in Qatar. He earned his Masters in Biochemistry at the University of Tübingen in Germany in 2006, and his PhD in 2010 at the Max-Planck Institute for Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg, Germany. During his thesis he applied mass spectrometry-based proteomic strategies to understand chromatin organization and higher order nuclear structure. In his postdoctoral years he developed different types of quantitative mass-spectrometry-based strategies to understand biological processes involved in autophagy and cancer. Since 2016 he has been focusing on the application of high-throughput affinity-based proteomic assays such as SOMA and Olink in clinical research at Weill Cornell Medicine in Doha, Qatar.
