Matthias Trost studied chemistry at the Albert-Ludwigs University in Freiburg, Germany and at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), UK. He received a Ph.D. in 2004 while working at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, Braunschweig, Germany, under the supervision of Lothar Jänsch and Jürgen Wehland, for research on the proteome of the human pathogen Listeria monocytogenes and how the human proteome is altered following Listeria infection. Matthias then carried out postdoctoral research with Michel Desjardins and Pierre Thibault at the University of Montreal and the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC), Montreal, Canada, working on the proteome and phospho-proteome of the phagosome. During this time he also analysed the phospho-proteome of leukaemic stem cells. In 2010, he took up his position as a Programme Leader & Head of Proteomics in the MRC Protein Phosphorylation & Ubiquitylation Unit (MRC PPU) at the University of Dundee where he was tenured in 2016. Since March 2017, Matthias is Professor of Proteomics at the Faculty for Medical Sciences at Newcastle University.
