About Marcus Fischer

Dr. Marcus Fischer holds a dual appointment in the departments of Structural Biology and Chemical Biology & Therapeutics. He received his BSc and MSc from the University of Lübeck, Germany, and his PhD from the University of York, UK, and did his post-doctoral training under Prof. Brian Shoichet at the University of California San Francisco in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry. Dr. Fischer also serves as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Dr. Fischer has chosen to eschew the traditional cryogenic practices of crystallography in favor of a more complete view of the protein conformational landscape that includes protein flexibility and hydration.
