Dirk Tischler (1982) studied Applied Natural Science at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg (Germany) with emphases on Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology and continued as a PhD student under supervision of Prof. Michael Schlömann. In 2012 he had finished PhD and became an group leader at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. His research aims at novel monooxygenases for enantioselective oxygenation reactions as well as biosynthetic and biodegradative pathways which include monooxygenases. Currently the research team investigates: siderophore production and application, actinobacteria with respect to genomics and transcriptomics, novel monooxygenases and reductases as well as enzymes involved in sugar activation and transferring processes.
