Schilling Laboratory

Welcome to the laboratory of Professor Dr. Oliver Schilling.

The Schilling laboratory pursues a research program in two areas: translational proteomics and proteolytic signaling.

We are always happy to hear from students who are interested in pursuing their BSc, MSc or MD thesis in our field.
Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Congratulations to our team member Balint Barta,joint Freiburg-Budapest/Semmelweis PhD student, for winning a poster prize at the 2023 meeting of the German Society of Pathology.

Our ERA TRANSCAN grant application on cholangiocarcinoma, together with friends from Paris, Milan & Budapest, has been successful!

Translational proteomics

In translational proteomics, the Schilling laboratory pursues three major goals:

  •  establishing proteome profiles and markers to stratify patients with regard to therapeutic response and individualized therapeutic options
  • establishing proteome profiles and markers that distinguish related diseases
  • understanding mechanisms of therapy resistance and identifying novel therapeutic targets

 We utilize three flavors of mass spectrometry based proteomics

  1. Explorative (“shotgun”)
  2. Targeted (MRM / SRM)
  3. Spatially resolved (“MALDI Imaging”, Fig. 1)

Proteolytic signaling

In this area, the laboratory focuses on cell surface proteases and how they modify cell-matrix interaction. Recent projects have investigated the roles of ADAM-9 and FAPα in solid tumors (Fig. 2).


The Schilling laboratory is supported, amongst others, by the Heisenberg program of the German Research Council (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG), the CRC NephGen, the CRC OncoEscape, the RTG ProtPath, the RTG MeInBio, the DFG-FAPESP program, the DFG-ANR program, the ERA-Net programs on Personalized Medicine (PerMed) and Translational Cancer Research (TRANSCAN), the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK), the BMBF program “KMU-innovativ”, the invest BW program, and the Centers for Personalized Medicine Baden Württemberg.
