Leonid Sazanov

Leonid Sazanov is a Professor leading research group “Structural Biology of Membrane Protein Complexes” at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria. He uses cryo-electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography to study structure and mechanism of membrane-embedded molecular machines from the domain of bioenergetics. His group solved the first structures of bacterial and mammalian respiratory complex I, V/A-type ATPase and proton-translocating transhydrogenase. Leonid was born in Belarus, obtained PhD in Biophysics from Moscow State University in Russia, and performed research in UK at the University of Birmingham, Imperial College London and MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Since 2000 he was a group leader in the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit in Cambridge and moved to ISTA in 2015. Leonid is a member of EMBO and a Fellow of the Royal Society.
