New Editorial Board Members
The Editorial Board of Angewandte
Chemie advises the editors on matters
regarding the content and presentation
of the journal. Its members represent
the broad spectrum of chemistry in
universities, research institutes, and industry. A. Kleemann (Asta Medica) and
B. Wetzel (Boehringer Ingelheim) have
just finished their terms, and four new
members have accepted the invitation of
the German Chemical Society(s Board
to take up a four-year term from January
1, 2004.
Hartmut Michel received the Nobel
Prize in Chemistry (1988) together with
J. Deisenhofer and R.
Huber for the determination of the three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic reaction center.[1] At the Max-PlanckInstitut (MPI) f9r Biophysik in Frankfurt/M.
(Germany) he now studies
gene expression and the
mode of action of cytoH. Michel
chrome c oxidase, which
plays an essential role as
the terminal enzyme in aerobic metabolism.
Michel studied biochemistry at the
Universit=t T9bingen (Germany) and in
1977 completed his PhD with D. Oesterhelt in W9rzburg (Germany) on proton gradients at the cell membranes of
halobacteria. Shortly afterwards he began attempts to crystallize membrane
proteins, in which he succeeded in 1979.
He moved with Oesterhelt to the MPI
f9r Biochemie (Martinsried, Germany)
and in 1981 succeeded in crystallizing a
photosynthetic reaction center. In 1987
he became director at the MPI f9r
Biophysik (Frankfurt/M.).
Rudolf K. Thauer studied medicine
(Frankfurt/M.) and biochemistry (T9bingen). He completed his PhD (with K.
Decker) and his habilitation at the
Universit=t Freiburg (Germany). Following postdoctoral research at the Case
Reserve University
(Cleveland, OH,
USA) he became professor
at the Universit=t
1973. In 1976 he
moved to the
Universit=t Marburg (Germany)
R. Thauer
and has been director of the MPI f9r terrestrische
Mikrobiologie in Marburg since 1991.
His research is focused on the biochemistry of methanogens and the structures and reaction mechanisms involved
in enzymatic methane production. His
contribution on the stereospecificity of
hydrogenases was the cover-picture article in ChemBioChem 7 – 8/2001.[2] Thauer is a member of the Editorial Advisory
Board of ChemBioChem.
Hans Ulrich Stilz completed his
chemistry studies with D. Seebach at
the Universit=t Freiburg and the ETH
Z9rich (Switzerland) with a dissertation on hyperconjugation
in activated ketones.[3a] He completed his PhD in
1990 with D. Oesterhelt at the
MPI f9r Biochemie
strucH. U. Stilz
ture – property
relationships of photosynthetic reaction
centers.[3b] During this period he spent
six months with H. Michel at the MPI
f9r Biophysik (Frankfurt/M.). After his
PhD studies he spent two years at the
California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, USA) with P. Dervan, where he
carried out research into the sequencespecific recognition of C – G base pairs
and the formation of triple helices.

Stilz started at Hoechst AG in 1992
and has contributed to the development
of several drug candidates. Since 1999 he
has been head of chemistry research at
Aventis in Germany. He is involved with
international chemistry management at
Aventis and has been head of the GDCh
medicinal chemistry section since 2003.
Rainer Metternich has led the European Research Center of Schering AG
in Berlin since 2001. Between 1986 and
1997 he moved up the ranks in pharmaceutical research at Sandoz AG in Basel
from laboratory to division leader. From
1997 to 2000 he was
senior chemistry expert and member of
the global researchmanagement committee at Novartis.
engineering in J9lich
then chemistry at
R. Metternich
Marburg, where he
also completed his
PhD in 1985 with R. W. Hoffmann on
topics including the configurational stability of chiral organometallic reagents.[4] During a postdoctoral period
with D. A. Evans at Harvard University
in Cambridge, MA (USA) he worked on
stereoselective synthesis and the total
synthesis of natural products. In 2001 he
was made Honorary Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Technische Universit=t Berlin (Germany). Metternich
has also been a member of the GDCh
Board since 2004.
