Simone Lemeer (1978) received her PhD in 2008 from Utrecht University, the Netherlands. Until 2014 she worked as a postdoctoral researcher and later junior group leader at the Chair of Bioanalytics at the Technical University Munich, Germany. In 2014 she became Associate Professor in the Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics group at Utrecht University (NL). Her research focuses on the development of methods for the enrichment and analysis of phosphopeptides and the correct site localization of phosphorylation events. In addition, her work focuses on the identification of rare phosphorylation events such as N-linked phosphorylation on Histidine. In addition, she uses this technology to study phosphorylation mediated signaling in health and disease. Recently, through advances in the identification of phosphorylation in bacteria with a special emphasis on histidine phosphorylation, her worked has centered on the role of bacterial phosphorylation mediated signaling in antibiotic response and antibiotic resistance.
