Area of Research: Professor Gunter Schneider’s current research interests include structural biology of bacterial pathogens. This research project aims at the structural and functional characterization of proteins and protein complexes from major pathogens, in particular Pseudomonas aeruginosa  and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. One of the objectives of this program is to provide sufficient structural and mechanistic insights to facilitate the design of strong binding inhibitors, which may be developed into novel drugs.
