Marco obtained his PhD in structural biology in the group of John Briggs at EMBL Heidelberg. He learned 3D electron microscopy and image processing solving the structures of COPI-coated vesicles. In the Aebersold group Marco will combine structural and proteomic data to reveal the modular architecture and function of protein complexes.
