Prof. Dr. Klaus Gerwert

Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB), Lehrstuhl für Biophysik

Klaus Gerwert studied physics in Münster and received his doctorate in 1985 in biophysical chemistry in Freiburg. After positions at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund and the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, USA, he accepted a university professorship in biophysics at Ruhr University Bochum in 1993. He is Fellow of the Max Planck Society since 2008, has been Director at the Max Planck Partner Institute for Computational Biology (PICB) in Shanghai, China, from 2008 to 2013. Gerwert actively promotes the development and application of vibrational spectroscopy in protein research, and is the holder of several patents. He is the founder and spokesperson of Collaborative Research Centre 642, “GTP- and ATP-dependent membrane processes” (2004–2016). In 2010, he founded the European “Protein Research Unit Ruhr within Europe” (PURE) together with clinicians. He is the founding director of ProDi, a federal/state-financed research centre for molecular protein diagnostics. Gerwert is a member of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts. His accolades include the Karl Arnold Jansen Prize from the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences and the Ruhr Innovation Prize jointly awarded by the State Premier’s office and the Krupp Foundation.

    New findings on the recycling centres of cells

    Like tiny garbage chutes, certain organelles clean cells of superfluous or defective material. Researchers are currently studying the mechanisms underlying this process. Both animal and plant cells depend on their own damaged or superfluous cell material being removed – a process referred t ... more

    New approaches to heal injured nerves

    Preventing the deactivation of a protein could be the key to repairing the central nervous system. Injuries to nerve fibers in the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves usually result in functional losses as the nerve fibers are unable to regenerate. A team from the Department of Cell Physio ... more

    How two water molecules dance together

    Although water is omnipresent, the interaction between individual water molecules is not yet fully understood. An international research team has gained new insights into how water molecules interact. For the first time, the researchers were able to completely observe all of the movements b ... more

    Light plus current: The formula for researching what happens to individual nanoparticles

    A combination of dark-field microscopy and electrochemistry can make individual nanoparticles in a liquid medium visible. The technique is suited to determine the activity of catalysts during their use. more

    Vibrational spectroscopy - Label-free imaging

    Spectroscopic methods are now granting us deep insights into biological systems at previously unattainable spatial and temporal resolutions. Complementing the already well-established fluorescence spectroscopy, the major potential of label-free vibrational spectroscopy has become clear in r ... more
