Executive Director
   Research Group: Gene Function Prediction

Frank Eisenhaber studied mathematics at the Humboldt-University in Berlin and biophysics and medicine at the Pirogov Medical University in Moscow. He was awarded a MD in 1985. Three years later, he received the PhD in molecular biology from the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology in Moscow (supervision by Dr. Vladimir Gayevich Tumanyan). After postdoctoral work at the Institute of Molecular Biology in Berlin-Buch (1989-1991) and at the EMBL in Heidelberg (1991-1999), he worked as teamleader of the bioinformatics research group and head of the general IT department at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna (1999-2007). Since August 2007, he is the Director of the Bioinformatics Institute A*STAR Singapore.

Frank Eisenhaber's research interest is focused on the discovery of new biomolecular mechanisms from omics and clinical data with theoretical and biochemical approaches and the functional characterization of yet uncharacterized genes and pathways. Frank Eisenhaber is one of the scientists credited with the discovery of the SET domain methyltransferases, ATGL, kleisins, many new protein domain functions and with the development of accurate prediction tools for posttranslational modifications and subcellular localizations.
