Prof. Dr. Iris Antes
Head of the Group
Prof. Antes studied Chemistry at the Universities of Tübingen, Marburg, Arizona, and the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Lille. She received her Ph.D. in Theoretical Chemistry from the University of Zürich for her work on QM/MM methods. Afterwards she moved into the field of computational biophysics, working in the groups of Porf. Dr. M. Klein at the University of Pennsylvania and Prof. Dr. D. Chandler at the University of California, Berkeley. Upon her return to Germany she joined the "Department of Computational Biology and Applied Algorithmics" at the "Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik" in Saarbrücken, where she was responsible for the Computational Chemical Biology group and received her Habilitation in Bioinformatics (Faculty of Mathamatics and Computer Science, University of the Saarland) in 2009. Since 2008 she is Professor for Protein Modelling at the TUM.
