Prof. Dr. Dimitrij Frishman
Academic Career and Research Areas
The research activities of Prof. Frishman (b. 1961) center on genome annotation, protein structure prediction and analysis and the prediction and analysis of protein interactions. He also investigates the evolution of membrane proteins and viral bioinformatics.
Prof. Frishman graduated from the Electrotechnical University in St. Petersburg in 1984, after specializing in biomedical electronics. He did his doctorate in biochemistry in 1991 at the Russian Academy of Sciences. An Alexander von Humboldt grant enabled him to work in the bioinformatics department of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg. He completed his postdoctoral studies in structural bioinformatics there in 1996. After that, he was a research fellow at the Munich Information Center for Protein Sequences. In 2001, he was appointed Deputy Head of the Institute for Bioinformatics at the GSF Research Center in Munich. Since 2003, he has held the position of professor of bioinformatics at TUM.
