Andrea Sinz received her degree in Pharmacy from the University of Tübingen (Germany) in 1993. She obtained her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from the University of Marburg (Germany) in 1997. From 1998 to 2000 she was a post-doctoral fellow at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD (USA) where she got introduced into chemical cross-linking and protein mass spectrometry. From 2001-2006, she was head of the junior research group ‘Protein-Ligand Interaction by Ion Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometry’ at the University of Leipzig (Germany). Since 2007, she is Full Professor and head of the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Bioanalytics at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (Germany). Since 2017, she is president of the German Society for Mass Spectrometry (DGMS). Andrea Sinz is an expert in chemical cross-linking and mass spectrometry for studying protein 3D-structures and protein interactions. Her research interests are the development of novel analytical strategies and reagents to advance the cross-linking/MS approach.
