Andreas Brunschweiger studied Pharmacy at the University of Kiel. He did a Ph.D. in the group of Prof. Christa Müller at the Pharmaceutical Institute of the University Bonn, working on nucleotide mimetics as modulators of purinergic signaling. During a postdoctoral stay in Prof. Müller´s group he designed multi-target acting compounds to be investigated in neurodegenerative diseases. A post-doctoral stay in the group of Jonathan Hall at the Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences of the ETH was dedicated to research in the microRNA area Zürich, specifically to the design of chemically modified microRNAs as probes, the development of a photocrosslinking and pull-down approach to identify target-RNAs of individual microRNAs, and to the design of chemically modified oligonucleotides as inhibitors of MicroRNAs. Since 2013 Andreas is a group leader at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Biology of the TU Dortmund. His research is dedicated to DNA-encoded library technology, and protein-protein interaction inhibitors.
