Dr. Alexander Pelzer

Head Technology Unit
Enzymes & Biocatalysts

Dr. Alexander Pelzer, born in 1986, studied biology at Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf. During his doctoral studies at the Institute for Molecular Enzyme Technology (IMET) of the Jülich Research Center he applied himself to the creation of different enzymes from pseudomonads as well as their biochemical and physiological characterization.

Dr. Pelzer’s career began at BRAIN AG in May 2014 as a research scientist and project manager in the Enzymes & Biocatalysts Unit. His proficiency in the development of industrial enzymes, i.e. application-related identification, computer-aided protein design and protein engineering as well as enzyme optimization, led to him being appointed platform coordinator of the Tailor-Made Biocatalysts technology platform in July 2017. Since July 2018, he has been in charge of the entire Enzymes & Biocatalysts technology unit.
