Dr Christian Schütz


Dr. Christian Schütz studied chemistry at the Saarland University in Saabrücken, Germany, where he obtained his PhD in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Rolf W. Hartmann and Dr. Martin Empting. His thesis dealt with the synthesis and optimization of novel quorum sensing inhibitors targeting PqsR. In December 2020 he joined the working group of Prof. Dr. Anna K. H. Hirsch as a Postdoc where he is involved in the synthesis and optimization of LasB inhibitors.
