The Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) is one of the largest Institutes of the Max Planck Society, a non profit research organization dedicated to top level basic research. The research focus of the institute investigates the structure, function and interaction of biological macromolecules (especially proteins) at the molecular, cellular and the organism level. The institute has a broad methodological repertoire ranging from x-ray structural analysis of proteins to their functional analysis in transgenic organisms.;

The department of Proteomics and Signal Transduction (headed by Matthias Mann) applies mass spectrometry (MS)-based quantitative proteomics and phosphoproteomics technologies to study signalling pathways in health and disease. Within the Euro-MOTOR programme several quantitative proteomic strategies will be used to address four important areas of the ALS disease: proteome differences, aggregate formation, identification of novel pathway proteins and the effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms for genetic predisposition.
