Professorships in the Cluster

Prof. Dr. Hannes Link

is Professor for Bacterial Metabolomics at the University of Tübingen from October 2020. He studied Chemical-Engineering at the Technical University Munich from 2000-2005 and received his PhD from the Department of Biochemical Engineering of the TU Munich in 2009. After 5 years as a postdoc with Prof. Uwe Sauer at the ETH Zurich, he headed an Emmy Noether research group at the MPI for Terrestrial Microbiology in Marburg from 2015-2020. His research group investigates metabolic networks and interactions between metabolites and regulators of gene expression. The aim of his research is to engineer bacterial metabolism for biotechnological and medical applications. This work includes the development of metabolomics methods to quantify metabolites and metabolic fluxes.
