Gregor Hagelueken, PhD

Gregor studied Applied Natural Sciences at the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg. For his diploma thesis he joined the research group of Dirk Heinz at the Department of Structural Biology of the Helmholtz Center for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig. He stayed there for his PhD thesis in the laboratories of Dirk Heinz and Wolf-Dieter Schubert and worked on virulence related proteins from Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Yersinia pestis

After completing his PhD, Gregor moved to the University of St Andrews in Scotland and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow with  Jim Naismith. There, he studied membrane proteins involved in lipopolysaccharide synthesis of bacteria. In St Andrews, Gregor was introduced to the field of EPR distance measurements on proteins through Olav Schiemann. By combining both techniques, Gregor pursuit a habilitation in "Biophysical Chemistry" at the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry in Bonn. Since 2019, Gregor is a group leader at the Institute of Structural Biology.
