Dr. Herbert Lindner began his undergraduate education in the field of chemistry at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. In 1982, while employed as a Contract Assistant at the Institute of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry, he obtained his Ph.D. Later in the same year, he relocated within the University to a position of Contract Assistant at the Department of Medical Chemistry and Biochemistry and, subsequently, was promoted to the position of University Assistant in 1984. In 1992, he received the award of Habilitation and “venia legendi” for Biochemistry. He was promoted to the position of Assistant Professor in 1994, and then to Associate Professor three years later. In 2007 Dr. Lindner was appointed Head of the Protein Micro-Analysis Facility at Innsbruck Medical University. He is currently the Vice Director of the Division of Clinical Biochemistry at Innsbruck Medical University.

Dr. Lindner is the author and co-author of more than 130 scientific publications, including manuscripts, reviews and book chapters. His publication citations are reaching 3400 times, having an h-index of 33, and an i10 index of 83, according to Google Scholar Citations. He has delivered over 250 oral presentations in Europe, the Americas and Asia. He presented several webinars about the use and principles of low-flow sheathless capillary electrophoresis-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry in proteomics research.

Dr. Lindner’s main teaching responsibilities are in chemistry, analytical-bioanalytical chemistry, biochemistry, mass spectrometry, advanced topics in clinical biochemistry and bioanalysis. He also teaches theory and practical training to medical students on mass spectrometry, high-performance liquid chromatography, high-performance capillary electrophoresis, and the sequencing of amino acids in a peptide by the Edman degradation method.

Dr. Lindner’s laboratory focuses on the development of high-resolution methods for the separation and identification of post-translationally modified proteins in order to investigate their biological significance. A set of separation methods based on capillary electrophoresis (CE), reversed-phase chromatography, hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) and mass spectrometry (MS) was introduced in his laboratory. In addition and as a result of a continuous development program over many years, he offers a wide range of analytical methods and services to support the work of other research scientists at the University and Industry ( The analytical tools developed and routinely applied in his laboratory led to numerous publications and successful national and international collaborations.
