About the article
F. Xavier Gomis-Rüth
F. Xavier Gomis-Rüth performed his PhD on protein crystallography under supervision of Wolfram Bode in the department of Robert Huber at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) in Martinsried (Germany) in 1992. Post doctoral stays followed at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, the MPIB, and the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB) of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), where he became a tenured research scientist in 2000. Since 2008, he has been a Research Professor at CSIC. He is the PI of the Proteolysis Lab at the Department of Structural Biology of the IBMB and author of over 100 publications in the field.
Sergio Trillo-Muyo studied human biology at the Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona, Spain, and obtained his BSc in 2006. In 2008, he obtained an MSc in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Bellaterra, Spain. He is currently a PhD student in the Proteolysis Lab at the Department of Structural Biology of the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona, which is part of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC).
Walter Stöcker studied chemistry and biology at the University of Munich, Germany. After receiving his doctoral degree in Munich in 1984, he was a scientific assistant at the Institute of Zoology, University of Heidelberg, Germany, and did research as a visiting scientist at the Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA, and the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Martinsried, Germany. He received his habilitation in biology from the University of Heidelberg in 1992, and became Associate Professor of Zoology at the University of Münster, Germany in 1996. Since 2003, he has been a full professor and chair at the University of Mainz, Germany. His research focuses on the structure and function of astacin-like zinc peptidases and their interactions in the proteolytic web.
