Research interests

Dr Christoph Goebl obtained his Bachelor and Master's degrees in Chemistry from the Karl-Franzens-University of Graz in Austria, and then his PhD in molecular biology from the same institute with Prof Klaus Zangger. During his PhD, he was a recipient of a DOC-fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and performed a one-year research stay with Dr Nico Tjandra at the NIH in Bethesda, USA, focusing on NMR spectroscopy of proteins. After his PhD, Dr Goebl joined Prof Tobias Madl as a PFP Helmholtz Fellow at the Technical University of Munich and the Helmholtz Center Munich, Germany where he became interested in the molecular basis of reactive oxygen species in biology. He then carried out a cell-biology focused post-doctoral position with Prof Tak W. Mak and Dr Chiara Gorrini at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, Canada, working on cancer-pathways and redox signalling.

Dr Goebl combines expertise in structural biology (using NMR spectroscopy, small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and X-ray crystallography) with experience in biochemical methods in oxidative stress signalling. He is exploring oxidative stress pathways of the Aryl hydrcarbon receptor (AhR) with focus on its metabolomic signalling in cancers. He also discovered redox-mediated amyloid formation of the tumour suppressor protein p16, and is currently investigating its role in melanoma.

Dr Goebll is a current recipient of the HRC's Sir Charles Hercus Health Research Fellowship.
