Meet the Author

Rolf Schmid obtained his PhD in 1970. After post-doctoral studies in France and the USA, he joined the research laboratories of Henkel KGaA in Düsseldorf in 1972 where he became Director of the Biotechnology Laboratories. In 1987, he moved to the 'Gesellschaft für Biotechnologische Forschung' (GBF) in Braunschweig where he headed the Division of Enzyme Technology and Natural Products Research.
In 1993, he accepted an invitation to build up the newly founded Institute for Technical Biochemistry at the University of Stuttgart. He is further in charge of the Department of Molecular Biotechnology at the Fraunhofer Institute for Membrane Science and Biotechnology in Stuttgart, and he is chairman of the IUPAC Commission of Biotechnology.

Vlada B. Urlacher obtained her diploma in Biology at the University of Tashkent, Uzbekistan. After receiving her PhD from the Academy of Sciences, Uzbekistan, she spent a postdoctoral year at the Institute of Technical Biochemistry, University of Stuttgart, Germany and then two years in the Institute of Biotechnology, University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany. In 2001 she returned to the Institute of Technical Biochemistry, University of Stuttgart. Since 2003 she has been head of Biocatalysis group at this Insitute. Her main research interests are engineering the technical application of oxidizing enzymes.
