Bio:

Roland Wohlgemuth studied chemistry and biology at the University of Basel in Switzerland and obtained his Ph.D. with Prof.Joachim Seelig in 1979 at the Biocenter of the University of Basel. He did postdoctoral work at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and UC Berkeley with a Swiss National Science Foundation Award in 1980 and a US Department of Energy employment with Prof. Melvin Calvin from 1981-1983. From 1983 on Roland Wohlgemuth has been working at Fluka, which in 1989 became part of the Sigma-Aldrich corporation in Buchs Switzerland, where he has been realizing industrial innovation at the chemistry-biology-engineering interface along the analytical as well as the synthetic orientation. His main research interests are in the area of novel biocatalyst development and their application methodology including downstream processing to obtain the final product-in-the-bottle and their integration into the way of synthesis in industry. He is interested in metabolites for ana-lysing enzyme functions and using biocatalysis for the manufacturing and analysis of central and remote metabolites. He is cofounder of the Swiss Industrial Biocatalysis Consortium and current chairman of the EFB section on Applied Biocatalysis.
