2021 GDCh MedChem PhD Awardee
Olalla has been awarded with the 2021 Ars Legendi Fakultätenpreis in the category of Chemistry. This award recognises Excellence in University Teaching, and, in particular, Olalla’s implementation of an innovative course for chemist and biologists: A Chemical Biology Approach to Epigenetics. In this context she aims to bring the students the real picture of research. […]
PNAs enable miR-155 inhibition in macrophages
Bene has been awarded with the German MedChem PhD Prize by the German Chemical Society (GDCh). What a milestone Dr. Heinrich!!! We miss you in Marburg.
PLOS Genetics Paper Is Out!!
We achieve manipulation of primary cells without compromising viability by PNA-conjugates. Check our RNA Biology paper of Greta. Congrats, Greta! Well-deserved! Excellent collaboration with Schulte’s Lab.
New Doctor in House!! Oh, Yeah!!
It is a great pleasure to contribute to this brilliant story of Jonathan Lenz & Alexander Brehm. Exciting science arises from our collaborative TRR81 Chromatin Changes in Differentiation and Malignancies
Promoted – Professor of Chemical Biology
“Chemistry is even not close to what Nature does” Lea Albert. However, you are catching on, Lea! New Doctor at Marburg University. Excellent work on photoswitchable peptides as tools for light-controlled modulation of epigenetic protein complexes. The best is about to come. Keep looking! Updated pandemic photo too.
RSEQ Young Group Leader Award 2020
It is only a crazy dream until you we do it! TENURED!!! Promotion to Associated Professor of Chemical Biology at Marburg University at Marburg University from January 2021. What a ride! Thanks everybody, in particular my PhD students: Bene, Lea, Greta, Lei and Marco. Dream crazier!!!
Thrilled of receiving the 2020 Young Group Leader Award from the Royal Spanish Chemical Society (RSEQ) Thanks to all my supervisors and mentors, and especially thank you to my team and students at Marburg University. They do the magic! Better times will come to celebrate together!
Our TRR81 lockdown paper is online! We review the fetal hemoglobin repression network focused on epigenetic repressors that could be targeted by PROTACs. Excellent teamwork with Sjaak Philipsen. Kudos to Thijs & Marco! You can find this article in the Chemical Epigenetics Issue.

We are thrilled to share our new paper in Chemistry—An European Journal. We have implemented a peptide‐based platform to prepare, and confine bioorthogonally activatable BODIPY-tetrazine photosensitizers. Check out our cytoplasmic membrane derivative, quite impressive! Congrats to Greta, you rock!
As Whitesides said “Interesting & unpublished is equivalent to non-existent”. We believe that published & unread does not make it any better. We publish to share our findings and achieve a collective advancement in science. Therefore, we are thrilled that our work on photoswitchable protein-protein interaction (PPI) modulators belongs to the 2019 top downloaded ChemBioChem […]
