Synthetic Biochemistry

Kathrin Lang has been a Rudolf Mößbauer Tenure Track Assistant Professor since April 2014.

Professor Lang conducts research in the interdisciplinary area of chemical biology, applying concepts from organic chemistry to develop new tools to study fundamental biological questions. Her research focuses on the targeted chemical synthesis of new artificial biomolecules (amino acids, proteins, nucleotides, oligonucleotides) tailored to investigate and manipulate complex cellular processes in in vitro and in vivo biological systems.

Postdoctoral researcher Mathias Enderle, doctoral candidate Susanne Mayer and master student Thorsten Müller also work in this Focus Group.
