Work with the experts in mass spectrometry and epigenetics
EpiQMAx is based on an idea from Prof. Axel Imhof, Dr. Moritz Voelker-Albert and Dr. Victor Solis. We have worked in the Histone Modifications group at the BioMedical Center in Munich. Backed up by our knowledge and experience on mass spectrometry and epigenetic modifications, our goal is to contribute to the development of epigenetic drugs, together with the pharmaceutical industry.
We are supported by a team that coordinates legal, administrative and organizational aspects. Moreover, we have created alliances with other companies to offer an attractive technique with a competent and ambitious service.
Dr. Moritz Voelker-Albert
CEO of EpiQMAx GmbH and developer of our experimental kit. Dr. Völker-Albert studied Biomedicine in Marburg, Leiden and Utrecht. He has obtained his doctoral degree from the LMU in chromatin research and analysis of histone modifications by mass spectrometry.
Dr. Victor Solis
CEO of EpiQMAx GmbH and main software developer and data analyst of the company. Mr. Solis studied Bioinformatics in Lima, Turku and Heidelberg. He has 6 years of experience on the analysis and visualization of mass spectrometry data, for which he obtained his doctoral degree from the LMU.
Dr. Peng Yu
Head of Technology of EpiQMAx GmbH and main developer of EpiQMAx's branch for analyses of biologics and small molecules. Dr. Yu has extensive expertise in the development and implementation of bioanlytical methods. He has served as lab head of mass spectrometry at Novartis and tech lead of glycoproteomics at InterVenn Biosciences. He obtained his PhD from the University of Minnesota.
Prof. Dr. Axel Imhof
Scientific advisor and mentor of EpiQMAx GmbH. Prof. Imhof brings a large expertise to the company as a specialist in the epigenetics, histone modifications and mass spectrometry fields. His academic experience and contacts in the clinical context will allow the implementation of the long term corporate goal of EpiQMAx: to bring epigenetics to the clinic.
