Stefan Schiller

Stefan M. Schiller studied chemistry at the Justus Liebig University Gießen, the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz. He received his diploma in organic chemistry in 1998 from the Johannes Gutenberg University. After working on a research project in the main laboratory of the BASF AG, he joined the MPI for Polymer Science where he completed his Ph.D. on biomimetic supramolecular membrane architectures. During this time he performed research at the IBM Research Center Almaden, San Jose, Stanford University, the Biotechnology Engineering Department, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Beer Sheva, Israel and the Manuel Lujan Los Alamos Neutron Scattering Center, Los Alamos. From 2004-2008 he has been a postdoctoral fellow working with Prof. Peter G. Schultz at the Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California in the field of chemical biology and synthetic biology. In 2008, he joined the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) at the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg, as junior research fellow in the School for Soft Matter Research until 2013. In 2014 he got awarded the BMBF-research price “2014” focusing on the modular expansion of cell functions.

As part of her fellowship, Stefan Schiller is working on the project Development of model mechano-transduction films based on engineered avidin monomers: An example of soft-mechano-chemistry, together with his collaborator Pierre Schaaf.
