Christoph Steinbeck
Visiting Group Leader

Christoph Steinbeck's group at EMBL-EBI is dedicated to the elucidation of metabolomes by means of computer-assisted structure elucidation and other prediction methods, the reconstruction of metabolic networks, Natural Products research and algorithm development in molecular informatics.

Christoph led the European e-infrastructure project PhenoMeNal (large scale computing with human metabolic phenotyping data) after completing COSMOS (Coordination of Standards in Metabolomics). He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Cheminformatics, a past director of the Metabolomics Society, past chairman of the Computers-Information-Chemistry (CIC) division of the German Chemical Society, a lifetime member of the World Association of Theoretically Oriented Chemists (WATOC), and member of various scientific editorial boards and committees.

Christoph studied chemistry at the University of Bonn, where he received his diploma and doctoral degree at the Institute of Organic Chemistry. His PhD thesis focused on the program LUCY for computer-assisted structure elucidation. He joined the group of Professor Clemens Richert at Tufts University in Boston, MA in 1996, working on biomolecular NMR on the 3D structure elucidation of peptide-nucleic acid conjugates. He then became head of the Structural Chemo- and Bioinformatics Workgroup at the newly founded Max-Planck-Institute of Chemical Ecology in Jena, Germany. Christoph became head of the Research Group for Molecular Informatics at the Cologne University Bioinformatics Center (CUBIC) in 2002, and received his Habilitation in Organic Chemistry from Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena, Germany in 2003.

Christoph Steinbeck is Professor for Analytical Chemistry, Cheminformatics and Chemometrics at the Friedrich-Schiller-University in Jena, Germany
