Portfolio Prof. Dr. Pierre Koch
Pierre studied chemistry at the University of Tübingen (Germany). He received his Ph.D. in 2009 under the supervision of Prof. Stefan Laufer working on the design, synthesis and biological testing of novel small molecule inhibitors of protein kinases. As a postdoctoral fellow, he worked under the direction of Prof. Michael E. Jung at the University of California, Los Angeles (USA) in the Department of Organic Chemistry on the total synthesis of bioactive natural products. In 2012, he moved back to Germany to the group of Prof. Christa E. Müller at the University of Bonn where he worked as a postdoctoral researcher on the development of novel therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases. Since 2013, he is assistant professor for medicinal chemistry at the Pharmaceutical Institute of the University of Tübingen. His research interests are in the field of medicinal chemistry and chemical biology.
