Congratulations to Heidi Höck for her successful PhD defense!


We are delighted to announce that Heidi Höck successfully graduated on February 14th in presence of family, friends and colleagues.

Her work is entitled “Development of engineered lipases for enhanced surface binding and polymerization applications by directed evolution”. Heidi engineered Candidia antarctica Lipase B (CaLB) to perform enzymatic catalyzed polymerization. Her studies resulted in two publications: “Catalyzed Conversion of ε-Caprolactone in Aqueous Medium. Part 1: Immobilization of CaLB to Microgels” and “Comparison of Candida antarctica Lipase B Variants for Conversion of ε-Caprolactone in Aqueous Medium—Part 2” .

Heidi worked in the division of Computation Biology.

The whole Schwaneberg group congratulates Heidi for her achievement and wishes all the best and good fortune for her future!
