Professor Gerhard Wagner

Dr. Gerhard Wagner is the Elkan R. Blout Professor in the Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School.

Gerhard Wagner obtained his Ph.D. from the ETH Zürich in 1977 with NMR studies of protein dynamics. Subsequently he worked on methods for protein resonance assignment and structure determination. From 1987 to 1990 he was a faculty at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he developed triple-resonance methods for protein assignments. He also developed procedures for studies of protein dynamics. Since 1990 he is Professor of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School. His current interests are on eukaryotic translation initiation, transcriptional activation, immunology, apoptosis and membrane proteins. A major effort is on discovery and characterization of small molecule inhibitors of protein-protein interactions.  He is also strongly interested in further development of NMR methods and procedures for advanced sampling and data reconstruction. He has been elected to the German National Academy of Sciences (Leopoldina), The National Academy of Science USA and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
