Research group Jan-Hendrik Hehemann
The Glycobiochemistry research group, headed by Prof. Dr. Jan-Hendrik Hehemann, is affiliated with the University of Bremen, MARUM and the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology (MPI MM).
The group investigates the relevance of algal polysaccharides in the marine carbon cycle. The research group "Marine Glycobiology" is located at MARUM and the MPI MM Bremen. Based on its research, the new group "Glycobiochemistry" was founded at Department 2, Biology/Chemistry, of the University of Bremen. Prof. Hehemann's work is funded by a Heisenberg Professorship from the German Research Foundation (DFG). With the Heisenberg-Professur, the German Research Foundation (DFG) promotes scientists who stand out for their excellent research achievements, and enables them to pursue their research and to establish their own working groups.
The Glycobiochemistry research group contributes to teaching in the international study programmes BSc Marine Geosciences at the University of Bremen and MSc Marine Microbiology (MarMic) at the Max Planck Institute Bremen.
