Jan Dastbaz


Jan Dastbaz studied pharmacy from 2012-2016 at the Goethe Universität Frankfurt-Main. He was licensed to a pharmacist (Approbation zum Apotheker) in 2017. Under the supervision of Prof. Rolf Müller he was graduated with a Diploma in pharmaceutical biotechnology in 2018. 2019 he started as a PhD candidate in pharmaceutical biotechnology under the supervision of Prof. Rolf Müller at HIPS and is working on RiPP and NRPS-PKS biosynthetic pathways. Next to it, he is working on metagenomics on human lung microbiota and their secondary metabolism.
