Dr. Stefan KempaGroup Leader
Berlin Institute for
Medical Systems Biology

Dr. Stefan Kempa

Stefan Kempa is group leader at the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology BIMSB at the Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany. The group established gas chromatography coupled mass spectrometry (GC-MS) as well as liquid chromatography coupled mass spectrometry (LC-MS) based techniques to monitor the metabolome and the proteome.

In addition they have developed pulsed stable isotope resolved metabolomics (pSIRM) as a tool for a dynamic metabolic characterization of cellular metabolism. Using this technology they investigate cancer metabolism aiming to improve the understanding of cancer. The specific interest is to understand metabolic dependencies of cancer cells and to improve cancer treatment.
