Technische Universität Wien
Marko D. Mihovilovic graduated in technical chemistry at the Vienna University of Technology in 1993, also receiving his doctorate from the same university in 1996, in the field of organic synthetic chemistry. Post-doc placements as an Erwin Schrödinger scholarship holder then followed at the University of New Brunswick (Canada) and the University of Florida (USA), in the fields of biocatalysis and molecular biology. Returning to VUT, he set up his own research group in 1999. He completed his habilitation in 2003 in bio-organic chemistry and was appointed Associate Professor in 2004. Marko Mihovilovic has been Head of the Institute for Applied Synthetic Chemistry at VUT since 2003 and was recently appointed as Full Professor for Bioorganic Synthetic Chemistry (February 2014).
