Andreas Matouschek

Professor in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology
Main Office:NMS 4.304

Andreas earned his first degree in biology at the Ludwig Maximilians University Munich and then later a Ph.D. with Alan Fersht in the chemistry department of the University of Cambridge. Following graduation, he did a postdoc with Jeff Schatz at the Biocenter of the University of Basel before moving to Northwestern University in Evanston, IL for a position as an Assistant Professor. Andreas’ graduate research investigated the mechanism of protein folding in vitro and his postdoctoral work studied protein import into and folding in mitochondria. Andreas’ own lab currently investigates more complex biological processes, like the Ubiquitin Proteasome System, in order to understand simple enzymatic reactions in mechanistic detail. The goal is to reveal novel principles of cellular regulation and allow for the engineering of new cellular functions.
