Prof. Dr. Kevin Pagel

Freie Universität Berlin, Department of Biology, Chemistry and Pharmacy 

Kevin Pagel is Full Professor for Bioorganic Chemistry at the Department of Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacy of Freie Universität Berlin and guest researcher at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society. He obtained a PhD in Organic Chemistry from Freie Universität Berlin and spend several years abroad as researcher at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford (UK). Research in the Pagel group is focused on the structural analysis of biological macromolecules, in particular glycans and glycoconjugates, using liquid chromatography, ion mobility-mass spectrometry and gas-phase infrared spectroscopy. For his work he received several recognitions, including an ERC Consolidator Grant, and is spokesperson of an international graduate school with the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and McGill University in Montreal.

“The Pagel group will be leading work package six, which is focused on fundamentals and standardization of ion mobility measurements and the theoretical calculation of collision cross sections. Central for this will be the combination of ion mobility experiments with cryogenic gas phase infrared spectroscopy and density functional theory.”
