14th International Conference on the Chemistry of Antibiotics and other Bioactive Compounds, 13-16 October 2015, Texas, USA


Rolf Müller, Helmholtz center for Infection Research, Germany

Rolf MüllerRolf Müller studied pharmacy at the Bonn University and did his PhD at the Department of Pharmaceutical Biology, where he worked as a postdoc further-on. In 1996, he went to the Department of Chemistry at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA. At that time, he already began to investigate the production of antibiotics in bacteria and two years later came back to Germany as a junior group leader at the German Research Centre for Biotechnology (GBF, now HZI) in Braunschweig. In 2000, he completed his habilitation thesis at the Technical University Braunschweig about the biosynthesis of antibiotics in actinomycetes and myxobacteria. Since October 2003, Rolf Müller holds a chair as professor of pharmaceutical biotechnology at the Saarland University and in 2009 became the managing director of the Helmholtz-Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS). Furthermore, he heads the department of “Microbial Natural Products” (MINS) and co-founded the PharmBioTec GmbH in Saarbrücken.
