Partner Investigator

Professor Dr Jörg Stülke is a world-leading expert in systems biology and has extensive experience in working with a range of prokaryotic model organisms.

He is a Professor of Microbiology at the Institute of Microbiology and Genetics, University of Göttingen, Germany and serves as head of the Department of General Microbiology. His work focusses on the regulation of metabolism in the pathogenic bacterium Mycoplasma pneumoniae and the model organism Bacillus subtilis, in the context of gene expression. A key focus of this work is to understand mechanisms of RNA- and ribonucleotide-mediated regulation. Stülke’s experience and expertise in studying B. subtilis and Mycoplasma species is closely related to the Centre activities. Professor Stülke has published more than 230 peer-reviewed research papers that have received over 14000 citations.
