Abstract
Thomas Wollert pursued his PhD in the laboratories of Wolf-Dieter Schubert and Dirk Heinz at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig, Germany. In 2008, he moved to the USA for a postdoctoral position with James Hurley at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, as an EMBO Long Term Fellow. In 2010, Thomas returned to Germany to start his own group at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried. His work has been recognised with awards from the German Society for Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, and the German Genetics Society. More recently, Thomas received the 2014 Walter Flemming Medal from the German Society for Cell Biology, the 2015 EMBO Young Investigator Award and the 2015 Eppendorf Prize for Young European Investigators. His laboratory combines biophysics with cell biology in order to study the process of autophagosome formation.
