Herrmann, Prof. Andreas

Andreas Herrmann
Andreas Herrmann

Andreas Herrmann studied chemistry at the University of Mainz. From 1997 to 2000 he pursued his graduate studies at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research. In 2004 he was appointed as a head of a junior research group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research dealing with biological-organic and biological-polymeric hybrid materials. In 2007, he became an associate professor and in 2010 a full professor at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials (University of Groningen). Within a few years, Herrmann has been awarded several major, prestigious grants by NWO and ERC.

Herrmann’s research involves searching for a simple way to make complex molecules, which can be used as the basis for developing new drugs. Herrmann wants to use aptamers to this end, tiny DNA or RNA molecules that bind to a specific part of a molecule. They thus shield off a part of the molecule, enabling the unshielded parts to be chemically adapted in a simple and targeted way. Herrmann wants to develop this technology further and create new molecules that cannot be created using normal synthetic chemistry. He and his colleagues have also developed an antibacterial filling for 3D printers. The primary applications will be in dentistry, but it will be able to create other implants as well.
