- Nassos Typas, EMBL, Germany
Athanasios (Nassos) Typas is a trained biochemist, geneticist, and systems biologist. He leads a group at the Genome Biology Unit at EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany since 2011. His group combines systems microbiology with molecular mechanism to study bacterial cellular networks, and how bacteria interact with each other, the environment and the host. A key focal area of the group is on drug-microbe interactions: identifying new therapeutic strategies, understanding and predicting the drug mode of action and cellular resistance potential, and dissecting the interplay of medication with the gut microbiome. Nassos has received a number of awards (NIH K99/R00, Sofja Kovalevskaja Award- Humboldt Foundation, ERC consolidator grant) and is a member of the European Academy of Microbiology.
