Dr Kustatscher is a Group leader and MRC Career Development Fellow at the Insitute for Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology, Edinburgh.

He studied Molecular Biology at the University of Salzburg, Austria, and obtained a PhD from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, working  on epigenetics in the lab of Andreas Ladurner. 

From 2008 to 2020 he was a Postdoc in Juri Rappsilber’s group at the Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology (WCB) in Edinburgh, combining proteomics and computational approaches to understand how cells regulate mRNA and protein levels from a systems perspective.

Integration of "omics" data


Current research interests

The aim of my lab is to understand how cells regulate protein levels, and how these processes are disrupted in cancer cells. We address this question by combining proteomics, transcriptomics and computational approaches, including machine-learning.
