Marian Breuer earned his B.Sc. in Chemistry from Jacobs University Bremen, Germany (2010) and his Ph.D. in Physics from University College London, UK, in the group of Prof. Jochen Blumberger (2015). During his Ph.D., he used classical molecular dynamics in combination with density functional theory to study the thermodynamics and kinetics of electron transfer (ET) through multi-heme proteins, discovering how electronic interactions can offset unfavorable thermodynamics of ET. He joined the lab of Prof. Luthey-Schulten in 2015 as a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for the Physics of Living Cells, moving to the modeling of whole-cell behavior. His current work is focused on modeling the genome-scale metabolic network in a minimal cell.
