Junior-Professorship for Protein Biochemistry
(The German Junior Professorship is equivalent to an Assistant Professorship)
Welcome to the group of Matthias Höhne!
Our research focuses on enzyme discovery for biocatalysis.
Our vision is to apply in silico screening approaches for identification
of biocatalysts with desired properties (e.g., substrate specificity).
Additionally, we use protein engineering to improve the protein
in the desired way.
The identified catalysts are applied for the biocatalytic synthesis of
fine chemicals such as chiral amines.
