From  1994 to  1998 Albert Sickmann studied Chemistry at the Ruhr - University of Bochum .

He took his PhD in 2001 at the University of Bochum  with a dissertation and earned his doctorate with the topic of  "Proteome  analysis of human cerebrospinal fluid."

In 2002 he was appointed a s Junior professor of "Protein Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics" at the  Ruhr - University of  Bochum. In 2003 he moved to the Rudolf Virchow Center,  DFG Research Center for Experimental Biomedicine of the University of  Würzburg.

There upon Albert Sickmann moved to the  Leibniz - Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften  - ISAS - e.V. ( ISAS) to strengthen the research program  in life science . Since 2009 he is  the  scientific director  of the department bioanalytics at  ISAS and since  2011  the CEO of the institute .

Albert Sickmann deals with the  protein networks of yeast mitochondria and signal transduction in  human platelets and is working  on an improvement of  analysis procedures and methods in the field  of proteomics and systems biology.

His particular focus  is mass spectrometry. Since 2009 Albert Sickmann is an elected member of the GBM  scientific  advisory board and taking  care for t he study groups bioanalytics and bioinformatics.

Since 2013 he is  the President of the German Society for Proteome Research (DGPF) and  since 2015 member of the board of the  European Proteomics Association (EuPA).
