Biochemistry II

Dr. Andrea Hupfeld (née Kneuttinger)


Our Vision

Our global goal is the design of artificial enzymes with an integrated photoswitch through which enzyme activity can be spatio-temporally controlled by light. It is our vision that these photoswitchable enzymes contribute to the scientific progress in diverse fundamental and application-oriented research fields. This vision motivates us to work closely together as a cohesive team.

The three factors of light, progress and teamwork are illustrated in our group logo: Light (yellow), which originates from several pieces that come together as a sphere symbolizing a team (blue), illuminates the path of progress (arrow).
