Slide LudwigLab Biocatalysis & Biosensing Research Group

We are fascinated by the world of oxidoreductases. We love fancy enzymes, colorful cofactors, spectacular electron transfer events and complex catalytic mechanisms. We are dedicated to research, and driven by our curiosity and the aspiration to understand and learn from nature. We endorse teamwork and believe in a collaborative, enjoyable working atmosphere. To pursue our goals we work together with wonderful collaborators – experts in their fields – and enjoy the many facets of science. We are committed to our scientific home – BOKU–University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna – and our funding agencies to reach their goals: to improve science and our society.

The Biocatalysis and Biosensing Research Group delves into the field of biotechnology and enzymology, and studies a variety of research topics: enzyme identification and isolation, mycology, screening techniques, homologous and heterologous protein expression, protein purification, biochemical characterization of enzymes, steady-state kinetics, transient kinetics, electrochemical methods, enzyme applications in biocatalytic processes, process development and enzyme applications in biosensors and biofuel cells.
