Professor of Organic Chemistry, Aachen, Germany

2000 - present

 

In 2000 he obtained his habilitation in bioorganic chemistry and was appointed professor of organic chemistry at the RWTH Aachen University.

His main research activities are in the field of bioorganic chemistry/chemical biology and focus on the development of new molecular tools for functional genomics and proteomics. These tools are mainly based on synthetic S-adenosyl-L-methionine analogues and methyltransferases, a class of enzymes that methylates various substrates like DNA, RNA, proteins and small molecules and serves a broad variety of biological functions ranging from metabolism to epigenetics.
