Professor Robert Moritz is Director of Proteomics at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB), Seattle, USA, and is leading the effort to establish a Human Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM) Atlas, a comprehensive resource designed to enable scientists to perform quantitative analysis of all human proteins. The project is expected to fuel important research gains in biomarker discovery and validation, the search for protein-based diagnostic tests, personalized medicine, and human health monitoring.

Prior to joining ISB in the mid-2008, Professor Moritz was one of the key investigators in the Joint Protein Structure laboratory headed up by Professor Richard J. Simpson (JPSL-Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, and The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne, Australia). During his 25 years at JPSL, Professor Moritz designed and implemented a number of technologies currently used in many proteomics laboratories across the globe.
