Christine Vogel originally trained as a biochemist in Germany, but moved to Cambridge, England, to obtain her PhD in computational and structural biology with Dr. Cyrus Chothia and Dr. Sarah Teichmann at the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Biology. She later moved to Austin, Texas, to work with Dr. Edward Marcotte. In Dr. Marcotte’s lab, Vogel co-developed computational methods to improve identification and quantitation of proteins observed in mass spectrometry-based experiments. In 2011, Christine Vogel started her own research group at New York University, Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, investigating the systems properties of protein expression changes in response to environmental stress. Specifically, Vogel’s lab investigates how yeast and mammalian cells respond to chemical stress, such as those triggered by hydrogen peroxide treatment.
