Dr. Peter Hoffman
Adelaide Proteomics Center
Hoffmann received his Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry at University of the Saarland, Germany in 1999. He spent four years in Melbourne working with Richard Simpson and Bruce Kemp where he specialised in the use of free-flow electrophoresis in proteomics and the detection of protein phosphorylation by mass spectrometry. He moved back to Germany in 2003 and played an integral role in establishing a proteomics facility at the University Leipzig, Germany. In 2005, he was recruited back to Australia to establish a Proteomics Centre at the University of Adelaide. The Adelaide Proteomics Centre is equipped with the latest technology in Proteomics and provides service to academic researchers and industry. His research is focused on biomarker discovery in cancer, detection of protein phosphorylation and Tissue Imaging Mass Spectrometry. Hoffmann\\\'s group was the first in Australia to establish Tissue Imaging Mass Spectrometry. The Adelaide Proteomics Centre houses the national facility for Tissue Imaging Mass Spectrometry for Australia. Hoffmann is also Deputy Director of the newly formed Institute of Photonics and Advanced Sensing of the University of Adelaide and he overlooks projects to use Photonics and advanced sensing technology for biological and medical applications.
