Uli Kazmaier studied chemistry at the University of Stuttgart where he obtained his PhD working with U. Schmidt. Afterwards he joined the research groups of M. T. Reetz (Marburg) and B. M. Trost (Stanford) as a postdoc. In 1992, he moved to Heidelberg starting his own scientific work at the Institute of Organic Chemistry. In 2000 he received a Novartis Chemistry Lectureship and in 2001 an offer of a full professorship at Saarland University, where he is since that time.
His current research interest is focused on new organometallic reagents and reactions especially for amino acid and peptide synthesis, and their application to natural product synthesis. Late state modification of peptides allows medicinal chemistry with natural products.
