1985 Jean-Louis Reymond obtained his diploma working with Professor Seebach at the ETH Zürich. He finished his thesis in the field of total synthesis in 1989 in the group of Professor Vogel. After being in the United States for two years at the Scripps Research Institute he became an assistant professor there. 1997 he returned to the University of Bern, Switzerland. His research interest is biocatalysis and in particular enzyme design, assays, profiling, fingerprints and inhibitors.
