Biography Details
Dr. MAURER-STROH Sebastian
Senior Principal Investigator
Areas of Research Interest
Sebastian Maurer-Stroh's research interests lies in mapping the uncharted islands in functional protein sequence space. This includes inferring functions for uncharacterized genes/proteins based on remote evolutionary relationships, prediction of the 3-dimensional structure of proteins, identification of biologically important residues and disease-related mutations, as well as developing predictors for short functional motifs in protein sequences.
Sebastian Maurer-Stroh studied theoretical biochemistry at the University of Vienna and wrote his master and PhD thesis at the renowned Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP). After the honour of a FEBS and a Marie Curie fellowship at the VIB-SWITCH lab in Brussels, he leads a group of experts in protein sequence analysis as a senior principal investigator in the A*STAR Bioinformatics Institute (BII) since November 2007. He has contributed widely used predictors for posttranslational lipid modifications, amyloid fibre formation and catalyzed new biomedical insights by sequence-based function predictions. He has been at the forefront of research during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic collaborating with hospitals and health authorities in Singapore, Mexico, Brazil and Australia. He initiated a cross-division programme for Human Infectious Diseases at the Bioinformatics Institute that builds upon the expertise of several groups from different backgrounds and expands the range of human pathogens studied at BII.
