Welcome to the Bornscheuer group!

Our major research target is the development of tailor-made biocatalysts suitable for industrial applications.
Please enjoy to explore our web-site to get a more detailed description of the group, its projects, publications and other information. To see our fancy robotic platform, see here

Mechthild Gall (#41) and Fabian Steffen-Munsberg (#42) have just finished their PhD!

Uwe Bornscheuer has received the "Stephen S. Chang Award" of the Am. Oil. Chem. Soc. (AOCS).

Our paper on the discovery of (R)-selective amine transaminases has just been highlighted as "Best Design Concept" by Nat. Chem. Biol.

We celebrated that Uwe Bornscheuer is now 15 years (!) in Greifswald. Many previous PhD students and postdocs joined the event, picture.
