Willkommen | Welcome

Thank you for visiting the biochemistry group headed by Prof. Dr. Anett Schallmey.

We believe that enzymes are excellent and sustainable catalysts applicable for many chemical reactions and thus present a valuable alternative to many chemical catalysts. Our interdisciplinary research focusses on the investigation, utilization and engineering of novel enzymes as biocatalysts for various industrially relevant applications.

Open PostDoc Position in Biocatalysis

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow (full-time) in biocatalysis, starting from April 1st 2018 for a period of 12 months. You will work within the EU-funded project CARBAZYMES in the field of biocatalysis on a novel enzyme cascade. After having been successfully established, this cascade needs further optimization on preparative scale and suitable down-stream processing has to be developed for later scale-up at the industrial partner. Please see the detailed job offer. Application deadline is January 28th 2018. Continue reading...

Horizon 2020 summer school "Biocatalysis as a Key Enabling Technology"

From October 3rd to 6th 2017, the Horizon 2020 summer school "Biocatalysis as a Key Enabling Technology" took place in Siena, Italy. From our group, Elia, Willem and Anett joined the meeting which was organized by CarbaZymes in collaboration with Metafluidics and ROBOX as an all Horizon 2020 funded, coordinated project event.

Further participants also attended from current Marie-Curie ITN actions Biocascades, OXYtrain and EScat, as well as from the COST action CM1303 "Systems Biocatalysis". The aim of the Summer School was to teach modern cutting edge technologies, disseminate conceptual innovations and recent discoveries, and to instruct the next generation of expert scientists in the field of biocatalysis. In total, 60 young researchers working in various laboratories from 16 European countries, of 23 different nationalities and from more than seven EU funded projects attented the School and showcased their own research work by poster contributions and short oral presentations. Twelve expert lecturers from six European countries, both from industry and academia, presented their insight views on important aspects within a compact program, spanning a broad scope of platform technologies from enzyme discovery, enzyme engineering, and synthetic applications, including industrial utilization.
Anett's lectures were titled "Identification of novel enzymes by bioinformatic and metagenomic approaches" and "Application of halohydrin dehalogenases in biocatalysis".

CarbaZymes delivers innovation at BioTrans 2017

The CarbaZymes partners held their internal progress meeting this year in beautiful Budapest at the Eötvös Lóránd University as a satellite event to the 13th BioTrans Symposium - Europe’s major conference in applied biocatalysis.
CarbaZymes had a strong presence at the BioTrans symposium too: Our research results were presented by Professor Pere Clapés who gave a plenary lecture, Dr. Anna Szekrenyi who gave an oral presentation and further 12 posters showing the consortium´s outcomes and breakthroughs in biocatalytic syntheses to support greener processes for industrial production. more
