Vera Meyer

Vera Meyer studied biotechnology at the Sofia University (Bulgaria) and the TUB (Berlin University of Technology, Germany). After obtaining a PhD degree (2001) and habilitation (2008) at the TUB, she worked as Assistant Professor at Leiden University (2008-2011). She has been visiting scientist at the Imperial College London (2003) and at Leiden University (2005-2006). By March 2011, she became Full Professor of Applied and Molecular Microbiology at the TUB.

Vera Meyer has research interests on fungal biotechnology with main emphasis on systems biology, genetic engineering and antifungal drug development.  

Arthur Ram

Arthur Ram (1967) studied Biology at the University in Amsterdam. After he obtained his PhD degree in 1996 at the same University, he worked as a post-doc for two years (1997-1999) at TNO before moving to Leiden University. Currently, he is associate professor and head of the Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology group within the Institute of Biology at Leiden University. His research interests relate to several aspects concerning growth and development of the filamentous fungi and include polarized secretion, cell wall biosynthesis, adaptation mechanisms to stress and transcriptional regulation of secreted hydrolases.


Gerhard Braus

Gerhard Braus (1957) studied Biology at Albert-Ludwig University in Freiburg, Germany. He earned a PhD degree (1987) and the habilitation (1992) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). He was appointed as Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen in 1993 and as Full Professor of Microbiology and Genetics in Göttingen in 1996. The major focus of his activities is on the interplay between secondary metabolism and development of eukaryotic microorganisms (yeasts and filamentous fungi) and the impact of fungal pathogens on  human health and agriculture.


Mark Caddick 

Mark Caddick (1958) studied Genetics at the University of Liverpool, UK. He earned a PhD degree (1986) at the University of Newcastle and initiated his reserch group as a Lecturere at the University of Liverpool (1987) where he is currently Head of the Department of Functional and Comparative Genomics. The major focus of Mark’s research is in the genetic and molecular analysis of gene expression and its regulation in eukaryotes. The work is focused primarily on filamentous fungi but extends to mammalian and plant systems. A key research goal is the application of fungal systems for use in synthetic biology.
