Portrait

»Antifreeze proteins are one of nature’s fascinating adaptations to extreme conditions. Being a protein structure chemist and biophysicist I am particularly interested in the unusual ability of these proteins to bind to ice crystals with high selectivity and above all quasi permanently. The structural basics of these interactions have not been understood completely. With regard to technical applications we modify these molecules, aiming at novel properties.«

Frank Sönnichsen. Since 2010 professor of Organic Chemistry at Kiel University. Before associate professor at the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio (USA). In 1989 doctorate at Kiel University. From 1989 to 1992 postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta (Canada). From 1992 to 1995 research assistant at the University of Alberta, from 1995 to 2002 assistant professor at Case Western Reserve University.
