Research interests

Sandy Schmidt completed her Ph.D. in 2015 in the group of Prof. Uwe Bornscheuer at the University of Greifswald in the field of protein engineering and enzymatic cascade reactions. After a research stay at Delft University of Technology as postdoctoral fellow within the group of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Frank Hollmann, she was working as a group leader at Graz University of Technology. Starting from April 2020 on, Dr. Schmidt has been Assist. Prof. and Rosalind Franklin Fellow at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen within the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy. Research in the Schmidt lab exploits the powerful reactivity and selectivity of enzymes from secondary metabolite pathways for the production of natural products and their analogs for pharmaceutical applications. The two main lines of research are (1) the design and assembly of synthetic metabolic pathways and (chemo)enzymatic cascades for biocatalytic applications using synthetic biology tools; and (2) the development of new concepts for electron transfer pathways in microorganisms.
