• LEPTIN Maria

    Maria Leptin received her PhD in 1983 for work on B cell activation carried out at the Basel Institute for Immunology, Switzerland, under the supervision of Fritz Melchers. She switched to the study of development in Drosophila when she joined the laboratory of Michael Wilcox at the Medical Research Council’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB) in Cambridge, UK, for her postdoctoral work on Drosophila integrins. After a research visit at the laboratory of Pat O’Farrell at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), where she began her work on gastrulation, she spent 1989-1994 as a group leader at the Max Planck Institute in Tübingen, Germany. In 1994, she became Professor at the Institute of Genetics University of Cologne. In January 2010, Maria Leptin was appointed Director of EMBO and established a research group in Heidelberg at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). The group studies cell biology and biophysics of cell shape changes and the mechanisms of innate immunity. Maria Leptin is an elected member of EMBO, the Academia Europaea, the German National Academy, Leopoldina, and an Honorary Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences. She is Deputy Director of the Christiane-Nüsslein-Volhard Stiftung, member of the selection panel for the Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators, has chaired an evaluation panel for ERC Advanced Investigator Grants, serves on the editorial boards of leading journals, on advisory boards of several academic institutions and selection panels for funding institutions.
