Jörg studied biochemistry at the University of Regensburg, Germany. In November 2000, he started out his Ph.D. in the lab as part of the Hsp33 group. He is trying to elucidate the in vivo-function of Hsp33 with particular focus on the fate of the bound substrates and the transcriptional regulation of Hsp33. Joerg mainly uses biochemical and proteomic tools and is funded by a fellowship from the "Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds".
In his spare time, Jörg loves playing the piano as a soloist and in various ensembles, e.g. a local band, "The Cowcatchers" and a piano/vocal duo together with Cornelius von der Heyden, which recently released two CDs ("Monuments of Love") in Germany. Besides music, he also likes (beach) volleyball, a good cool Bavarian beer, traveling, chess and ballroom dancing.
