The research group of Prof. Dr. Anett Schallmey believes that enzymes are excellent and sustainable catalysts applicable for many chemical reactions and thus present a valuable alternative to many chemical catalysts. Their interdisciplinary research focuses on the investigation, utilization and engineering of novel enzymes as biocatalysts for various industrially relevant applications.
Dr. Schallmey received her PhD at the Institute of Biochemistry, Dept. of Biotechnology & Enzyme Catalysis, University of Greifswald, Germany. In 2007, she worked as a Postdoctoral fellow in the group of Prof. Dr. Dick B. Janssen, Groningen - Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute, Biotransformation and Biocatalysis, University of Groningen, The Netherlands. She was awarded in 2009 a Junior Professorship for Biocatalysis funded by the Initiative for Excellence at the RWTH Aachen University, Institute of Biotechnology, RWTH Aachen University, Germany. Since 2014, she works as a Professor for Biochemistry at the Institute for Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, a post she continues to hold today.
