Dr Horst Schirra
After undergraduate studies in Chemistry at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany), I completed my PhD at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich (Switzerland) and the Max-Planck-Institute for Biochemistry in Martinsried (Germany). In 1999 I joined UQ, first in the Centre for Drug Design and Development and later in the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, supported by an ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship and a Queensland Smart State Fellowship. In 2009 I took up an independent academic position in the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences. I am currently the Director of the School’s Molecular Biosciences Honours Program.
