About Till Bartke

Till is the Deputy Director of the Institute of Functional Epigenetics (IFE) at the Helmholtz Zentrum München. After completing his PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried, Munich, under the supervision of Stefan Jentsch, Till decided to join Tony Kouzarides at the Gurdon Institute in Cambridge in 2005 to perform his postdoctoral research. Here he established SILAC Nucleosome Affinity Purifications (SNAP) as a proteomics-based method to identify and quantify chromatin-binding proteins that interact with modified nucleosomes. In 2011 he established his own group at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences at Imperial College London before moving back to Munich to join the Helmholtz Zentrum München as Deputy Director of the IFE in 2017. Till uses a mix of biochemical, chemical biology, proteomics and computational methods to investigate how epigenetic readers extract information from chromatin.
