“The LAH4 system for DNA delivery: The metamorphosis of a model peptide to a medical tool”
He studied physics in Freiburg im Breisgau, Brighton and Heidelberg and finished 1999 with a master degree at the German cancer research center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg. He did his PhD studies at the Max Planck Institut for Biochemistry in Martinsried and the University of Strasbourg under the supervision of Burkhard Bechinger and received 2003 the PhD degree from the University of Strasbourg. He broadened his expertise in PostDoc position at the Startup Company AC Immune, the University of Umeå and the University of Srasbourg. In 2014 he was recruted as chargé de recherche at CNRS (UMR 7177 university of Strasbourg/CNRS).
His main interst is the investigation of membrane peptides by solid state NMR and other biophysical methods like fluorescence, cirular dichroism and others. He is working on a peptide assisted enodsomal delivery system (LAH4). Is not a classical cell penetrating peptide, but it can serve a similar goal.
