Lab Members - Jimmy Ytterberg

Dr. A. Jimmy Ytterberg joined the group as post-doc in September 2006 after finishing his Ph.D. at Cornell University (Prof. Klaas Jan van Wijk). He obtained his magister examen (Swedish equivalent of a MSc) in chemistry from Stockholm university 2000 and enrolled in the graduate program in the department of biochemistry at the same university spring 2000 to work with Prof. van Wijk. When Prof van Wijk accepted a position in the department of Plant Biology at Cornell University later that year, Jimmy move together with the rest of the lab to NY and enrolled in the graduate school at Cornell University. Jimmy's research at Cornell focused on proteomics of the thylakoid membrane of Arabidopsis thaliana.

His research at UCLA focused on quantitative proteomics and protein characterization using biochemistry, isotope labeling and mass spectrometry.

Currently, Jimmy is a researcher in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, where he is trying to adapt again to the cold, dark winters (but he is nearer his homeland of Sweden).
