Rüdiger H. Ettrich
Rudi received his prediploma in chemistry (Vordiplom) from Eberhard-Karls-University, Tuebingen, Germany, in 1993, his Master of sciences (Mgr.) in physical and macromolecular chemistry from Charles University, Prague, in 1998 and his PhD. in physical chemistry from Charles University, Prague, in 2002.
Since 2013 he is a full Professor (Prof.) in biophysics and acts as
- director of the national research infrastructure C4Sys-Center for Systems Biology in the Czech Republic
- group leader at the Center for Nanobiology and Structural Biology in Nové Hrady, Institute of Microbiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic
- lecturer at the Faculty of Sciences, University of South Bohemia in Ceske Budejovice.
Rudi's research is focused on the relationship between structure and function of proteins, dynamic changes related to functional processes on the level of proteins and the mutual interaction of cofactors and subunits in protein complexes. The research approach is very complex using various methods of protein research with a synthesis of theoretical and experimental methods.
