In March this year Chemical Science was delighted to welcome Dr Carsten Schultz as an Associate Editor, further strengthening our Associate Editor team. He is now handling submissions in the area of Chemical Biology.
Dr Schultz received his PhD from the University of Bremen in 1989. He then spent some time as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, San Diego before returning to Germany to take up a position at the University of Bremen in 1997 for a few years. He has been a group leader at EMBL since 2001 and a Senior Scientist since 2008.
Carsten leads the Schultz Group at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg. The lab is interested in better understanding complex intracellular signalling networks relevant in diabetes, cancer, lung inflammation and metabolic diseases. For this purpose the group develops probes useful for visualizing intracellular events such as enzyme activities, lipid metabolism or protein translocation in intact cells. The Schultz lab also constructs tools to manipulate cell components and their activities.
Carsten and Chemical Science:
Carsten says that “in Chemical Science I like to see articles that describe chemistry of the highest quality.” He enjoys reading papers on novel synthetic methods, natural compound syntheses, and mechanistic studies, and says that what excites him most is “when chemistry is used to solve highly relevant problems in biology, pharmacology, physiology or medicine; similarly important are applications of chemistry to material sciences and physics.”
You can submit your high quality research in the area of Chemical Biology to Carsten Schultz’s Editorial Office.
