Head of Research & Development
On completion of his PhD in chemistry from the University of Technology (Munich), Markus pursued his first postdoctoral fellowship focused on photo-controlled hairpin peptides at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Martinsried. He subsequently completed a second postdoc fellowship at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) with Prof. Seebach, with emphasis on synthesis of peptides, amino acids and unnatural amino acids. Recruited as a research scientist in 2006, Markus quickly demonstrated his technical acumen and management abilities. He currently leads research, development and pilot production efforts for Senn.
