Welcome to the homepage of Prof. Horst Vogel

Our search is focused on elucidating cellular signalling processes covering areas from biophysics, biochemistry to cell biology. We made seminal contributions to the understanding of the function of central cellular membrane proteins, and developed novel bioanalytical techniques which found wide-spread applications for the investigation of transmembrane signalling processes. Besides the activities in fundamental research, We are always active in transferring novel inventions and technologies to applications, by patenting, licensing patents, collaborating with industrial partners or by creating start-up companies. We have very long-term and intensive collaborations with many world-leading companies including Roche, Novartis, Nestlé, Merck-Serono and many others.
