Dr. Markus Lambertz

Markus Lambertz, born in 1984, studied biology with a focus on zoology, paleontology and geology in Bonn, where he graduated with a diploma degree in 2010. After a research stay over several months in Ribeirão Preto (Brazil) he worked on his doctoral thesis in Bonn, receiving his doctorate in 2015. Following this, he was a guest lecturer in Viçosa (Brazil). Since 2015 he has been an associate postdoctoral fellow in the Herpetology Section of the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig and since 2016 a research assistant at the Institute of Zoology at the University of Bonn.


Markus Lambertz teaches the biodiversity of his native fauna, the basics of animal physiology, the comparative and functional anatomy of vertebrates, and the ecology of Western Canada. He is also editor of a science publication on the literature and history of herpetology and terrarium science and is second Chairman of the "International Society for Respiratory Science".


In 2017 he was awarded the sponsorship prize of the Horst Wiehe Foundation.


Markus Lambertz is interested in the evolutionary and functional morphology of vertebrates and in respiratory biology.

    A "corset" for the enzyme structure

    The structure of enzymes determines how they control vital processes such as digestion or immune response. This is because the protein compounds are not rigid, but can change their shape through movable "hinges". The shape of enzymes can depend on whether their structure is measured in the ... more

    How cells recognize uninvited guests

    Until now, the immune sensor TLR8 has remained in the shadows of science. A research team led by the University of Bonn has now discovered how this sensor plays an important role in defending human cells against intruders. The enzymes RNaseT2 and RNase2 cut ribonucleic acids (RNAs) of bacte ... more

    Activation of opioid receptor uncovered

    Together with colleagues from Shanghai, Brussels, Canada and the USA, researchers from the University of Bonn have uncovered the binding mechanism of an important pain receptor. The results facilitate the development of new active substances. The opioids used today to treat severe pain can ... more

    How gold plasma can make hidden structures visible

    In recent years, microcomputed tomography (μCT) has become a standard method in many medical, scientific and industrial fields. This non-invasive technique enables three-dimensional imaging of a wide variety of structures. However, a new combination of methods now makes it possible to visua ... more
