Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof Strittmatter (b. 1987) focuses her research on the development and application of in situ and ambient mass spectrometry methods, imaging mass spectrometry (MSI) as well as multimodal, multi-omics data integration to advance our understanding of complex biological systems. Her research groups aims to analyse the spatial heterogeneity in pre-clinical and clinical tissue specimen as well as microbial biofilms in medical, environmental and biotechnological settings.
Prof Strittmatter studied Chemistry at the Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany. She performed her doctoral studies at the Department for Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London, UK. From 2015-2021, she was Senior Scientist (from 2019 Associate Principal Scientist) in the MSI group at AstraZeneca in their R&D headquarters in Cambridge, UK in the Departmend of Clinical Pharmacology and Safety Sciences (CPSS). 2021 Prof Strittmatter was appointed to the professorship for Analytical Chemistry at TUM.
