Biography

Frank M. Boeckler received his Ph.D. in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Erlangen (Germany) in 2004 under supervision of Prof. Peter Gmeiner. He specialized in computational chemistry and drug design, ranging from QM methods to in silicoscreening. In 2006, he joined Prof. Sir Alan R. Fersht at the MRC Center for Protein Engineering in Cambridge/UK as Marie Curie fellow and discovered there p53 mutant stabilizers as potential new cancer therapeutics. While working in Cambridge at the interface of experiment and theory, he focused on molecular biology and biophysics. In 2008, he was appointed as Professor (W2tt) for Bioanalytics at Ludwig-Maximilians University (LMU) Munich. In 2010, he moved to EberhardKarls University Tuebingen as Professor for Medicinal Chemistry/Drug Design, where he now heads the Laboratory for Molecular Design & Pharmaceutical Biophysics. His work is dedicated to understanding molecular interactions as the foundation for chemical biology and drug research and to apply theoretical and biophysical methods to cancer research, particularly, for targeting the extensive p53 network.
