Richard Wombacher, Dr. rer. nat.

Richard Wombacher is junior group leader at the Institute of Pharmacy and Molecular Biotechnology (IPMB) at the Ruprecht-Karls University Heidelberg.
He graduated in chemistry at the Free University of Berlin and received Ph.D. at the Ruprecht-Karls University working in the field of RNA chemistry and RNA catalysis. After a post-doc in the laboratory of Prof. V. W. Cornish at the Columbia University in New York, he started his own research group at the Ruprecht-Karls University, working in the field of chemical biology. His research is focused on the development and application of chemical tools for protein modification and control of protein function.
