Congratulations to Gustavo Santos for his successful defense!


We are happy to announce that Gustavo de Almeida Santos successfully graduated.

His work is entitled “Engineering of heme-dependent monooxygenases towards heterocycle conversion”. Gustavo engineered the cytochrome P450 BM3 monooxygenase towards functionalization of aromatic O-heterocycles. His studies resulted in the following publication: Directed Evolution of P450 BM3 towards Functionalization of Aromatic O-Heterocycles.

Gustavo worked in the division of Molecular Bioeconomy under the guidance of Dr. Joelle Ruff and Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg.

We congratulate Gustavo de Almeida Santos for his achievement and wishes all the best and good luck for his future. Well done, Gustavo!
