Manfred Jung's Biography



Manfred Jung, Chemical Epigenetics Group Leader, Universität Freiburg

Manfred Jung did his PhD on the synthesis of retinoids at the University of Marburg in 1993. From 1993 to 1994 he did a postdoc with T. Durst (University of Ottawa, Canada). From 1994 to 2003 he was a group leader at the University of M√ľnster and obtained his habilitation in Pharmaceutical Chemistry in 2000. Since 2003 he is a Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Freiburg. In 2010 he received an offer for a full professorship to the University of Mainz that he declined and he is a Full Professor in Freiburg since 2011. In 2011/12 he was appointed as Fellow at the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies (FRIAS). The topic of his research is Chemical Epigenetics with a major focus on histone modifying enzymes. His group is working on inhibitor synthesis, assay development and screening for inhibitors of reversible histone acetylation and methylation.
