Prof. Dr. Ulrich Baumann

Current Research Interests include structural biology, X-ray crystallography, enzyme mechanism, structure-function relationships in proteolytic enzymes.


Prof. Dr. Günter Schwarz (Structural Biology)

We are interested to understand protein structure-function relations in different biological processes ranging from basic metabolism to molecular neuroscience. Our research is based on a variety of methods including molecular biology, protein biochemistry, enzymology, structural biology (protein crystallography), cell biology, bioinorganic chemistry and biotechnology. Interdisciplinarity is a key to investigate complex biological problems and therefore we established collaborations with laboratories working in divers field such as Human Genetics, Neurobiology, Crystallography, Spectroscopy and Medicine.
