Dr. Lars Lauterbach has been a team leader in the research group “Biochemistry of Gas-Converting Biocatalysts” headed by Dr. Oliver Lenz at the Technical University of Berlin since 2018. His expertise lies in the design and application of biocatalysts for both the production of sustainable biofuels and the use of biofuels for fine chemical synthesis. Dr. Lauterbach studied Technical Biology at the University of Stuttgart. In 2008, he finished his PhD in microbiology at the Humboldt University under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Bärbel Friedrich. After research fellowships at UC Davis (USA) with Prof. Stephen Cramer and at the University of Oxford (UK) with Prof. Kylie Vincent, he joined the group at the Technical University of Berlin.
