Welcome @ SFB1309!


Our new associate investigators:

Prof. Dr. Olivia Merkel moved to the LMU Munich in 2016 and works on novel non-viral and targeted nanosized siRNA delivery systems.
Dr. Pavel Kielkowski started his junior group in 2019 at the LMU Munich. In 2020 he received the Liebig fellowship. His research focuces on mapping and characterizing protein post-translational modifications (PTM) by using mass spectrometry.
Prof. Dr. Stephan A. Sieber has the chair of Organic Chemistry II at the TU Munich. His goal is to identify unprecedent antibacterial targets beyond the scope of current antibiotics and to exploit these for chemical manipulation. For this he and his group apply a multi-disciplinary strategy comprising synthetic chemistry, functional proteomics, microbiology and protein biochemistry techniques.
Dr. Sabine Schneider received a Heisenberg fellowship. She moved back to the LMU Munich  in 2019. Dr. Schneider's group is interested in the structure-function relationship of nucleic acids; how they interact and modulate protein funtion and recognize small molecules. This structure-function relationship is probed by using molecular biology, biochemistry and X-ray crystallography.
